The name of Lockwood is of very ancient origin. Lockwood 
is mentioned in Domesdaj Book, which dates it back over eight 
hundred years. 

A place of the name in Staffordshire, Enghind, is celebrated 
for the medical quality of the water of its springs. 

There was also a town of Lockwood in Yorkshire, England. 
In the reign of Edward III. one John Lockwood was attached 
to the royal party, fought at Naseby, and was there wounded, 

In 1392 the name of John Lockwood is mentioned. In 1470 
the Lockwood estates passed to the Ilenshaws by marriage. la 
1530 Dews Hall, County Essex, and Gayton, County North- 
ampton, Rev. Richard Lockwood, Rector of Dingley, in said 
Northamptonshire, had a Coat of Arms granted to him : " Argent, 
a fe.sse between three martlets sable." The martlets indicate that 
he was the fourth son. 

The writer was told more than twenty-five years ago, by that 
greatest of all American antiquarians and genealogists, the late 
Samuel G. Drake, Esq., of Boston, Massachusetts, that "Anti- 
quarian labors are labors of love." 

In December, 1858, the Hon. Edward Everett stated in an 
address: " I have never known a person self-reliance was 
of so austere a cast that he did not take pleasure, when it was in 
his power to do so, in tracing his descent from an honored line." 

The undersigned has, for forty years, taken a great interest in 
genealogical researches, and has prepared family records fur sev- 
eral New England families. 

In 1877 he turned his attention to the name of Lockwood. In 
1881 the "Lockwood Historical and Genealogical Society" was 
formed at the Astor House, in the city of New York, with Mr. 

Amos. D. Lockwood, of Providence, Rhode Island, as its Presi- 
dent. That excellent gentleman was very much interested in 
the object of the work of the society, but, unfortunately for it, 
died before its work was completed. 

Circulars were sent, with direct questions to be answered ; and 
they were very generally promptly replied to. A large corre- 
spondence ensued. Letters came to me, with the circulars filled 
up, from almost all the States in the American Union, and finally 
letters and records came to hand from England, Scotland, and 
even Germany. 

Such an amount of information was collected that it surprised 
the subscriber and many of his friends. 

In January, 1888, Messrs. John W. Lockwood and E. Dun- 
bar Lockwood contracted with me for the Lockwood papers, 
and arranged with the subscriber to complete the records. Both 
these gentlemen reside in the city of Philadelphia, and it is to 
them that the descendants of Robert Lockwood are indebted for 
a work that will compare favorably with its kind among the 
over six hundred family records already printed in the United 

It is impossible for me, after twelve years of labor on the 
Lockwood family history, to make personal mention of the par- 
ties to whom I have been greatly indebted for assistance; all have 
done nobly. They have cheerfully, promptly, and warmly replied 
to my interrogatories, and have offered to render any further 
assistance in their power. 

To my friends, bearing the honored name of Lockwood, I 
respectfully return ray heartfelt thanks for aid in this work. 

Fjrederic a. Holden, 

Cor'g Member of the New England Hist, and Gen. Soc. ; 

The Rhode Ishind, Connecticut, Minnesota, and Wisconsin 

Hist. Socs.; and New York Biog. and Gen. Soc. 

Also, the Pilgrim Society, at Plymouth ; 

and Author of several Genealogies. 


February 5th, 18S9. 


Ix 1878 Mr. F. A. Holden commenced to compile tlie " Lock- 
wood Genealogy," and called upon the writer for information ; 
but he had little to give, except that contained in the Family 
Bible, as his life had been a busy one, spent at a distance from 
most of his relations, and he had never met ten persons named 
" Lockwood." 

Some months later, researches were made in the Pennsylvania 
Historical Society by the undersigned, with the result of discov- 
ering that the early Colonial and Revolutionary histories and 
manuscripts were full of the good work done by descendants of 
Robert Lockwood. An examination of this Family History will 
show how honorable that work was. 

Meeting with success, the researches have been constantly con- 
tinued, each new discovery increasing the desire to secure further 

In 1881, the Lockwood Historical and Genealogical Society 
was formed, which collected a number of family records, but 
after a few months the enthusiasm of its members abated, the 
funds gave out, and the work was stopped. Thus the matter 
remained until January, 1888, when the writer and Mr. John W. 
Ivockwood, of Philadelphia, purchased from Mr. Holden all his 
papers, and arranged with him to complete the work for publica- 
tiou, while the undersigned renewed his search in the various his- 
torical and biograpliical societies for additional information, and 
much of the early Colonial and Revolutionary history of the 
family has been obtained as the result of a careful reading of 
a large number of works relating to the early history of the 
Colonies, etc., and the examination of valuable papers iu the 
Pennsylvania Historical Society, and elsewhere. 

Interesting historical facts, occupying but a few lines in this 
work, have been brought to light by many hours of careful read- 
ing of ancient works either not indexed at all or only parti^dly so. 


Such, in a few words, is the history of this work. It is 
the first effort of the writer in this particular line, and would 
have been a failure but for the thorough and conscientious work 
of Mr. Holden, who has a well-earned reputation as a genealogist, 
and to whom the family are greatly indebted for his untiring in 
dustry. It is also due to Mr. John W. Lockwood to say that, 
while unable to give his personal attention to the work, the family 
is under great obligation to him for his very generous contribu- 
tion towards the expenses of the publication. 

The writer realizes that errors must have crept into this work. 
The information having come from numerous sources, and so 
many discrepancies having been found between the dates given 
in family Bibles, on tombstones, church and court records, it has 
been difficult at times to determine which is correct. 

It was not believed that this volume would exceed five hun- 
dred pages, but so much valuable information has been discovered 
lately that it has grown beyond our wishes or expectations. It 
was the intention to give a list of the descendants of Kobert 
Lockwood who served as soldiers in the late war, but this 
Genealogy having assumed such vast proportions, and the time, 
labor, and expense required to examine the hundreds of volumes 
published on the war, have forced us to leave that work to some 
future compiler. 

While we are indebted to many persons who have aided in this 
work, we are especially under obligation to Messrs. F. D. Stone 
and John W. Jordan, of the Pennsylvania Historical Society; 
to Wm. H. Lockwood, Esq., of Hartford, for generous contribu- 
tions of plates of various kiuds ; Jeremiah Colburn, Esq., and 
the New England Historic-Genealogical Society, of Boston ; the 
Executors of Rev. Edwin Hall, deceased ; Prof. H. P. Johnston, 
of New York, editor of " Connecticut in the Revolution ;" Jus- 
tin Wiusor, Esq., of Harvard College; Messrs. D. Appleton & 
Co. ; Admiral D. D. Porter; the Sherman Publishing Company, 
and Prof. John Bach McMaster, for favors shown or information

No effort has been made by the compilers to obtain information 
in England as to the ancestors of Robert and Edmund Lockwood 
(who came to America in Gov. Winthrop's fleet), but an exam- 
ination of such English works as were accessible in this country, 
gives some information as to their origin, and such extracts are 
printed, so that those who feel an interest in their English descent 
may have a basis from which to trace their line. 

The Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica, vol. i. p. 182, gives 
the pedigree of the Lockwoods for six generations, and it is also 
given in Part ii., p. 676, of the Visitations of Essex County, 

Further references to the name may be found in Surtee's Society^

Deposition of Susax Lockwood. 

Susan Lockwood, wife of Robert Lockwood, May 13th, 1654, 
gave evidense in a witch case, at a court held at New Haven, 
Connecticut, and stated that she was present when goodwife 
Knapp was hanged for a witch. (Xew Haven Colonial Records.) 

Elizabeth Brewster, goodwife Staples and goodwife Odill were 
also present, and examined the body of goodwife Knapp after she 
was executed, and stated that goodwife Lockwood was with them 
on that OGcasion. 

Note. — Mrs. Susannah Lockwood subsequently married Jef- 
frey Ferris. "Mrs. Susannah Ferris, wife of Jeffrey Ferris, died 
at ' Grinwich ' Dec. 23d, 1660." (Hy. Stamford, p. 158.) 

A.D. 1650, Robert Lockwood, of Fairfield, deeded to Rev. 
John Bishop the house and lot which he had purchased of Elias 
Bailey, Rev. Mr. Denton's attorney. (Hy. Stamford, p. 50.) 


Made a freeman in Boston in 1635, came with the first settlers, 
is on the list of those who paid for the survey, and received ten 
acres at the first assignment of land. 

Savage says he was from Watertown, Massachusetts, where he 
was made freeman, probably May 6th, 1635, whence he came to 
Wethersfield. He sold his lot in "Wethersfield, of forty-five acres, 
to John Deming. He came with the first colony from "Wethers- 


field, and in 1656 is one of the eleven Greenwich men who peti- 
tioned to be accepted under the New Haven jurisdiction. His 
will, found on the probate records at Fairfield, is dated January 
6th, 1664. He wills to the four boys he brought up, £10 apiece, 
if they live with any of his children until they are eighteen years 
old, the money then to be put out for them until they are twenty 
years of age. His will names also his wife Judy, sou James, son 
Jonathan Lockwood and Mary Lockwood, son Peter's three chil- 
dren, and son Joseph's two. Judy Bowers, his widow, receipts for 
her widow's portion, March 6th, 1667. His marriage contract 
with his wife Susannah, widow of Robert Lockwood, of date 
May 28th, 1661, pledges certain legacies to the children of Robert 
Lockwood, deceased, and mortgages his Greenwich lands and 
"housings." He died in 1666. The name Ferris is from 
Leicestershire, house of Feriers, from Henry, son of Gualchelme 
de Feriers, to whom William the Conqueror gave large grants of 
land in the three shires of Stafford, Derby and Leicester. (Hy. 
Stamford, p. 31.) 

1. Lieut. Jonathan Lockwood (Robert), born September 
10th, 1634,in Watertown, Massachusetts; died May 12th, 1688, 
in Greenwich, Connecticut, in his 54th year. Son of Robert and 
Susannah Lockwood. He signed a paper January Lst, 1657, at 
Easttowue, in the N. Netherlands, promising allegiance to the 
Dutch governor "so long as we live in his jurisdiction ;" was of 
Stamford, Connecticut, October 16th, 1660, and resided there until 
1665; when he sold his estate there and removed to Greenwich. 
He there became a freeman in 1670; was assistant in May, 1671, 
and in 1672, " one of the twenty-seven proprietors." He became 
a prominent citizen,* and represented the town in the Legislature 
four years. Up to 1688 Lieutenant Lockwood had been a lead- 
ing influential man in the town. This year he died, and the 
people met in town meeting and passed resolutions deploring the 
loss of so valuable a citizen. f 

His wife was Mary Ferris (sometimes called Marah), daughter 
of Jeffrey Ferris.

Jonathan Lockwood's wife was named Mary Ferris, and Jeffrey- 
Ferris in his will calls him "son Jonathan Lockwood." It is 
proper to state that Jeffrey Ferris married late in life Mrs. 
Susannah Lockwood, widow of Robert Lockwood, deceased. 
Susannah was Jonathan's mother, so Mr. Ferris was his step- 
father. But June 21st, 1687, Peter Ferris, Jonathan Lockwood 
(for his wife Mary), Joseph Ferris and James Ferris, being 
administrators of our deceased father Jeffrey Ferris's estate, 
sign their names as such, hence Mr. Ferris was Jonathan's

(Translated from the Dutch.) Journal of Capt. Lieut. Brian 
JSTuton : 

December 29th, Anno 1656. Capt. Lieut. Brian Nuton, with 
a Secretary and Commissary appointed by Heer Director General 
Stuyvesant, went in a boat to Oost-dorp in "NYeschester County, 
New York, on a mission. They landed, and heard an Indian 
call. On arriving at Oost-dorp, they requested that the inhab- 
itants be summoned the next morning, but were answered : " 'Tis 
our Sabbath morning; the Inhabitants will not come. We 
asked him to. learn the opinions of the principal settlers at 
once, as we could explain our business in half an hour with- 
out hindering their service. Which he proceeded to do. But 
brought us an answer, No ; that they were in no way so 
inclined. Although we would fain reach home by Sunday 
noon, we were obliged to remain there until Monday, as they 
would not be prevailed on to assemble on Sunday. 

" 31st ditto, Sunday. After dinner they went to the house 
to observe their mode of worship, as they had not as yet any 
clergyman. There I found a gathering of about fifteen men and 
ten or twelve women. Prayer was offered, a, printed sermon was 
read, composed and published by an English minister in Eng- 
land ; after another prayer, they sung a Psalm and separated." 

The day following they met the people, told them of the elec- 
tion of three magistrates from the six named by them, etc., etc., 
and after some objections as given in full, " all the inhabitants 
then present offered to subscribe" to the writing then drawn up, 
" and it was signed as appears therefrom by fifteen persons," etc. 
" Six persons were gone from home, and one was sick," etc. 
" These are all the present inhabitants of Oost-dorp, but they told 
us that three or four families more would soon come." Then 
complaints were sent by the people to the Heer General and 
Council about the insolence of the Indians, and they had never 
been well supplied with arms, and were stripped of the few 
which they had, and requested " some muskets, powder, lead and 
match." And so, after taking " breakfast with Mr. Ferris, they 
left, passed Hell-gate, and landed at the Mauhatans the 1st 
January, 1657." 


The paper was signed as follows : 

"This first January, Ao. 1657, In east towne in the IST. Neth- 
erlands, Wee hose hands are vnderwritten do pronies to oune the 
gouernor of the Manatas as our gouernor and obay all his mag- 
istrates and lawes that ar mad acordin to god so long as we Hue 
in his Jurisdiction." 

This is signed by fifteen persons, including

at which date she was twenty-two years of age. On that day the 
inventory of her deceased father's estate was probated, ''at a Court 
held in Fairfield." In the action of the Court this language 
appears : 

"Deborah being married hath received her portion of her 
father before his death. 

"Deborah Lockwood, aged 17, in 1654, said in a Court held at 
New Haven, Conn., she was present when Goodwife Knapp was 
going to execution." (Vol. 1653 to 1665, N. H. Col. Eec, p. 83.) 

Goodwife Knapp was hanged for a witch. 

This Court was held May 13, 1654, and Deborah was seven- 
teen years old the October before.

Lochwood and Sarah Cable. She heard goodwife Staplyes say, 
that she thought the said goodwife Knapp was no witch, and 
goodwife Gould presently reproved her for it.

Lieut. Gershom Lockwood married Lady Ann Millington, 
from England, daughter of Lord Millington. This lady came 
to this country in pursuit of her lover, a British army officer. Fail- 
ing to find him, she taught school, and subsequently married 
Gershom Lockwood of Greenwich, Conn. 

In 1660 her parents sent her a large oak chest, ingeniously 
carved on the outside, and strongly built ; tradition says " it con- 
tained half a bushel of Guineas, and many fine silk dresses," etc., 
etc. This identical chest is now (1888) at Mr. Samuel Ferris's 
house in Greenwich, Connecticut. Lady Millington's grand-

and the statements of elderly persons, now living, to whom the tradition has been 




It is said that Lord Millington had but two children, both 
daughters. The title may have become extinct in him, or gone 
to another male branch of tlie family. 

A memorandum taken from the New York Observer in the 
year 1866, of a meeting held at the Society Library of New York 
city, says the foundation of the Library was in a great measure 
owing to a gift of books left by the will of the Rev. Dr. Milling- 
ton, Rector of Stoke, Newington, London, England, to the "So- 
ciety for the propagation of the Gospel in foreign parts," and by 
this society it was presented to the Public Library of New York, 
now known as the Society Library. Dr. Millington died about 
1720, and his Library came over in 1729. He left no heirs, and 
his will gave other property or funds to this "Society" for mis- 
sionary purposes. 

Note. — Lieut. Gershom Lockwood and Rev. Dr. Millington 
died within about one year of each other; there has been a tra- 
dition in the Ferris family that the doctor was a near relative of 
Lady Ann Millington, and as he died about the time of her hus- 
band, who was 77 years old, he may have been her brother. 

Gershom Lockwood marri-rd Elizabeth, daughter of John and 
Elizabeth (Montgomery) Townsend, of Oyster Bay, Long Island, 
New York. In the Townsend Memorial, pp. 87, 88, 91, and 
132, I find the following : 

John Townsend died in 1668, and, as he died intestate, his 
widow according to a prevailing custom divided his estate. " The 
23d year of the reign of Charles II. King of England, and the 
tenth day of the fifth month 1671," i.e., July 10th, 1671. 

In .speaking of her daughter Elizabeth, she says : 

"To my eldest daughter Elizabeth, although not above men- 
tioned, yet she is to have with what she hath already received, 
£30, all at such pay as pa.=ses between man and man, after the 
rate of Indian Corn at 3 shillings a bushel, and wheat at 5s." 

" 2d. To the .said Elizabeth or her husband, Gideon ^yright, 
towards her portion, I give with what her father had before given 
her already, first two cows, 10 pounds, a young horse 5 pounds, 
a bed and furniture 10 pounds, 2 sheep 1 pound, 1 kettle 1 pound, 


in all .£'27, and Gideon her husband is to have £3 more, and that 
will be £30 in all." 

" Elizabeth, daughter of John Townsend 1st, married Gideon, 
son of Peter Wright, and had eight children. After his death 
she married Gershom Lockwood, who came from Connecticut, 
and returned there after his marriage to her."

Important Link in the Chain of Evidence Which is Expected to 
Help in Restoring English Property to the Heirs of Hannah 
Betts — Its Ovtnership to be Contested in Court To-Day. 

The old tombstone, which about a month ago was unearthed 
by some laborers who were digging for drainage connection in 
the rear of Thomas Sisk's saloon, at No. 224 Franklin street, 
Greenpoint, and which excited so much wonder and curiosity at 
the time and still more interest later when an inkling of its history 
was revealed, is now to appear in an important role in a history 
which, if fully written, would read like a novel. 

* Hy. Norwalk, 187. 



The ^YoRLD has already printed the inscription in fnll, but 
so important a part does it play in -^-hat has since become known 
that a cut of the stone iiself and the inscription thereon is here 



Herp Ve^ thp P"^Jy of Mr? H\|> 


Mdrch?oU> |687cjnd> Jjif^ 

As to how the stone came to be in this place, where no ceme- 
tery ever existed, and how, instead of marking a grave it filled 
a grave itself, numerous theories were advanced, but the true 
story which will presently appear has not before been given. 

When Mr. Sisk had deciphered the letters on the stone he 
came to the conclusion that he had a very valuable relic and 
placed it on exhibition in his saloon. Soon the little saloon was 
besieged with sight-seeing customers. Before many days one cus- 
tomer offered §55 for the tombstone, and a museum proprietor 
was willing to give $100 for it. But the possessor refused to 
part with it. Then Mr. William B. Winslow, Jr., of No. 172 
Fort Greene place, visited the saloon, and told Mr. Sisk that he 
was a descendant of Hannah Betts, and that the stone was an 


importaut link in the chain of evidence which it was hoped 
would y..!: re^'ore to her lieirs a large estate in England. Mr. 
Winslow^aid that he would like to have the stone and would call 
again to arrange for its purchase. But just then he was called 
away to Philadelphia on business, and during his absence another 
heir of Hannah Betts, who had noticed the newspajser reports, 
decided to secure possession of the stone. 

This was Mrs. Mary Field, an elderly lady, living at the 
corner of Greene and Clinton Avenues, who is a granddaughter 
of Hannah Betts's third son, Joseph. She applied to Lawyer 
E. F. Eiley, whose office is in the Garfield Building, and strategy 
was resorted to by which possession of the stone was obtained. 
Certain other heirs, whose names are as yet withheld, signed 
over to ^Irs. Field their interest in the stone, which they claimed 
belonged to the estate and not to Sisk, and then Mr. Riley took 
a mortgage on the stone from Mrs, Field for $50, payable on 
demand, and on the day following demanded the money. It 
was, of course, not paid, and Mr. Riley foreclosed. Constable 
Lyons then seized the stone, and despite the remonstrances of 
Mx\ Sisk carted it away to Kerrigan's auction room, where it 
still remains awaiting the result of the legal fight which was at 
once begun by Mr. Sisk, through his attorney, W. F. Courtney. 
An action of replevin before Justice Courtney resulted in the 
stone being replevied. Mr. Sisk then offered bonds to secure Mr. 
Riley, and to-day proceedings will be heard before the Justice to 
prove the security. Bonds will probably be accepted, and then 
counter-bonds will be offered by Mr. Riley to secure Sisk and 
thus keep the stone where it is. The trial to determine the 
ownership will probably not take place till next week. 

It has been claimed that Mr. Sisk is backed by certain heirs 
opposed to those who are represented by Mr. Riley, but anything 
definite on this score cannot be ascertained, though the history of 
the family, their fortune, and the tombstone suggests that there 
is a wheel within a wheel somewhere. 

John Burwell came to this country from the parish of Boving- 
ton, Hemel Hempstead, in Hertfordshire, England, about the 
year 1685, and settled in Milford, Conn. His father had died 
in 1670, leaving him sole heir of large and valuable landed 


estates in Hemel Hempstead, and when John came to thi^ coun- 
try he left his extensive possessions in charge of his sL-^ter, Maria 
Burwell, who also lived in Bovington. Not long after he came 
to this country he fell in love with Hannah Lochioard — now 
spelled Lochcood — who lived with her father, Gershoin Loehwood, 
in Norwalk, and married her. Tlien he purchased souie prop- 
erty in Greenwich, built a house and settled down. Two little 
girls were born to them. In 1689 he returned to England, tak- 
ing his family with him, to see after his estate. In the spring of 
the following year he again sailed for America. This time mis- 
fortune overtook him. The vessel in which he took passage was 
wrecked and one of his children was lost, while he and his wife 
and the other little girl, Hannah, were saved. He returned to 
Greenwich, but shortly after, while on a business visit to Xew 
York, was taken ill with small-pox and, returning to his home, 
died from the malady on May 1st, 1690. His wife survived 
him and afterwards married a Mr. Hanford. The little girl 
Hannah now became the sole heir to the English estates, but the 
death of the father while the child was so young left no person to 
look after them, and they have never been recovered from their 
wrongful owners by the legal heir of John Burwell. 

On April 15th, 1708, when Hannah had attained to woman- 
hood, she was married to John Betts, of Norwalk, in which place 
they continued to live, and here nine children were born to them. 
They were John, Burwell, Joseph, Silas, Sarah, Abraham, 
Hannah, Timothy and Gideon. Nearly all of the children 
eventually married, and some of them had large families. Bur- 
well Betts, the second son, was married twice and had thirteen 
children. Sarah had nine children and John also had nine, one 
of whom, Elizabeth, became the mother of eight children. It 
will be seen from this that the heirs to-day must be quite 
numerous. The grandchildren numbered over fifty and the 
great-grandchildren over a hundred. 

John Betts died in 1745, six years before his wife Hannah, 
whose tombstone forms the subject of the present controversy. 

It appears that from time to time, ever since the death of 
Hannah Betts, in 1751, efforts have been made by the American 
heirs to secure their inheritance, but thus far without substantial 


results. One heir, an old lady now dead, once wrote to Queen 
Victoria, and received a reply from the Home Omce saying that 
if the claim could be proved the heirs here would receive their 
rights. In the course of every twenty years, too. advertisements 
have appeared in American papers calling for the heirs of John 
Burwell and stating that an estate of several millions of dollars 
awaited them, but responses to these advertisements were never 
answered, and it was thought that the Englis!; holders sought 
only for information of the American heirs, the better to hold 
them off. At times the heirs here seemed to have labored under 
greater disadvantages because of forces at work among them 
which they could not overcome or quite place rheir hands on. 
It is said that certain heirs or representatives who went abroad 
at one time, returned well' satisfied with their vi.-ir, but not in- 
clined to push matters further, while the expenses of their trip 
seemed to have made no apparent impression on their resources. 

In 1861 unusual steps were being made for the recovery of the 
property, and it was then that the tombstone was. first brought 
forward in the proceedings. The body of Mrs. Betts was buried 
near jSTorwalk, but the report that the stone was stolen from there 
and that the body and the foot-stones are also missing turns out 
to be untrue. It w-as decided in the course of the proceeding 
that the headstone would be a valuable piece of evidence in 
proving the claim of the American heirs in England, and accord- 
ingly the stone was taken up, boxed for shipmtrat and sent to 
New York. It was temporarily placed in the store of one of 
the heirs, Mr. Nathaniel Hillyer, now of No. 428 Broadway, 
but from here it mysteriously disappeared, and all search for it 
was unavailing. Again it appeared that English agents were at 
work. Twenty-seven years passed by, aud not till the other 
day, when the digging laborers again brought the stone to light, 
was it heard of. Strange enough, only a few days before, an 
advertisement, such as had from time to time been published, 
appeared in one of the New York papers. It is understood that 
a great-great-grandson of Hannah Betts now lives in England 
and is interested in the estate, but in just what minuer cannot be 

Owing to the general reticence observed on the part of all the 


heirs and those concerned who have been found, it has been im- 
possible to learn just how many heirs there are at present, who 
they are, where they live or what relations they bear one another, 
either in kin or as regards the estate proceedings. In addition 
to those spoken of there is a ]Mrs. Peacock, an old lady who lives 
near AVestern Bay, L. I. ; another old lady, ninety years of age, 
who lives up in the State somewhere; a young man who lives on 
Long Island, and an old gentleman who takes a great interest in 
the genealogy of his old family, but whose name or home has not 
yet been discovered by the World reporter. There are also a 
number of heirs to the name of Burrell, Burwell and Beits. 
The name Betts appears to have been spelled at certain periods 
as thuugh it were Beets, and this may account for the different 
spellings which occur on the tombstone. Among the Bettses are 
Mr. George Betts, of iS'ew York, and Fred, and Samuel Betts, 
both of the law firm of Betts, Atterbury, Hyde & Betts. 

In connection with the tombstone the question which remains 
still unsolved, and which will probably remain so, is, how it came 
where it was found. At the time of the finding, no one in the 
neighborhood knew anything about it, and the oldest inhabitants 
were sure that there had never been a graveyard on the spot, 
and they did not remember ever having heard of any one by the 
name of Betts or Burwell as having lived in the county. It took 
only the newspaper notices of the affair to bring forward num- 
bers who knew all about the stone previous to its disappearance 
from the New York storehouse. Mr. Sisk's friends now claim, 
however, according to ]\Ir. Eiley, that some sis years ago the 
stone was left on the sidewalk of the property on which the 
saloon is located, and that after lying there some time it was 
buried in the backyard to get it out of the way. This story is 
scouted, and the explanation which seems most plausible is, that 
when the stone was so mysteriously made off with, it was thrown 
into the pond which in those days covered the ground in which 
it was found. 

Its finding now undoubtedly means a renewal of the efforts on 
the part of the heirs to recover their English estates, and if re- 
ports be true, and their chances are what they appear to be on the 
surface, they will be abundantly repaid, even though they num- 


ber among the hundreds, for the wealth of the English estates is 
rated to be almost fabulous. No figures are definitely stated, but 
one interested party volunteered to say, " Pretty close ou to 
$90,000,000 I guess."

raised concerning the estate of Mr. Stukeley "Westcott, late of

The Town Council of Warwick, at this meeting, February 15th,

There were two captains in the Revolutionary War, named 
Gilbert Lockwood, and they were both born in Greenwich, 
Fairfield County, Conn. The older Gilbert was sometimes called 
"Major," but generally Captain Gilbert Lockwood. 

A letter from one of the older Lockwood's, in the city of Xew 
York, in 1878, informed me that Captain Gilbert Lockwood's 
house stood on or near the boundary line between New York and 
Connecticut; and he was frequently surprised while entertaining 
officers of the American Army, at dinner, etc. 

Mrs. Hester Ferris, since deceased, stated to the writer in 1878 
that she well recollected Captain Gilbert Lockwood, of Green- 
wich, he lived near her father's house, that he stood very erect, 
and was the father of Andy Lockwood. 

Oliver Lockwood Ford w^ent with me into the old burying- 
ground, at Greenwich, on a very cold day, he was then 91 years 


old, and told me anecdotes of Captain Gilbert Lockwood, and 
stated that lie was buried near his son, Andrevr Lockwood ; the 
latter's resting; place is marked by a substantial headstone. 

Neither Captain Gilbert Lockwood, who was buried at Green- 
wich, nor his namesake whose grave is at Olive, Ulster County, 
N. Y., I am sorry to say, have gravestones. — F. A. H.

"Died in Norwalk, Connecticut, on the morning of the 2d of

about 12 days, in the 90th year of his age. On the 3d his 
remains were followed to the grave by a large concourse of

children, and many of his more remote posterity. He has left 
91 grandchildren and 88 great-grandchildren, the whole number 
of his descendants now living being (191) one hundred and 

"For about 32 years he sustained the office of Deacon of the 
First Congregational Church in that town. Deacon Benedict 
was one of those venerable personages by whom what remains 
of the pious habits of our forefathers, have been eminently 
exemplary, and years to come will feel its happy influence. 
Every morning and evening witnessed his devotion. His Sab- 
baths were faithfully appropriated to public worship and relig- 
ious family instructions. An amiable, cheerful disposition, a 
sound mind, improved by a good degree of reading and much 
reflection, and adorned with a bright constellation of Christian 
graces, comprised his character. At his funeral an appropriate 
sermon was delivered by the Rev. Dr. Burnett from Prov. xiv., 
32d, 'The wicked is driven away in his wickedness; but the 
righteous hath hope in his death.'' " (Manuscript at the time of

137. Rev. James Lockwood (Robert/ Ephraim,' James'), 
born December 20th, 1714, at Norwalk, Conn.; died July 20th, 
1772, in the 58th year of his age and the 34th of his ministry, 
at Wethersfield, Conn. ; married, November 4th, 1742, to Mary 
Dickinson, daughter of the Rev. Moses Dickinson, of Norwalk, 
Conn.; she died December 23d, 1794, aged 74 years. 

"The Rev. Mr. James Lockwood and Mrs. Mary Dickinson 
were married on the 4th day of November, Anno Domini 1742. 
By ye Revd. William Gaylord." (Wethersfield Record.) 

He was the eldest son of James and Lydia (Smith) Lockwood. 
He graduated at Yale College, 1735, and was chosen tutor in the 
same institution two years afterwards, in which capacity he served 
one year. Having, in the mean time, studied theology and re- 
ceived a license to preach, he was called to succeed the Rev. 
Stephen ]\Iix as pastor of the first church in Wethersfield, 
Conn. He accepted the call and was ordained on the 28th day 
of February, 1739. 


On April ]9th, 1758, the Presideucv of the College of jSTew 
Jersey having been vacated by the death of Jonathan Edwards, 
Mr. Lockwood was chosen to fill the place, but declined the ap- 
pointment. In 1760 he was chosen a Fellow of Yale College, 
and continued to hold the office till his death. After the resig- 
nation of President Clap in 1766, the Presidency of Yale College 
was proffered to him, but he declined this also. The reason 
given for his non-acceptance of the Presidency of both colleges 
was the strong attachment to the people of his charge, and his 
consequent unwillingness to separate himself from them. He 
continued their pastor, greatly respected and beloved, till the 
close of life. He published a sermon on the death of Mrs. 
Jerusha Woodbridge, 1799. 

Rev. Mr. James Lockwood delivered a political sermon to the 
citizens of Lebanon County, Conn., May 10th, 1759. (Conn.

Rev. Moses Dickinson (fatlier-in-law of the Rev. James 
Lockwood) was born in 1696, called from Maidenhead, New 
Jersey, and installed in 1727 ; died May 1st, 1778, in the 83d 
year of his age; having been pastor of the first church in Xor- 
■walk, Conn., nearly 51 years. 

Mr. Dickinson graduated at Yale College in 1717. 



this monumental stone 

lies interred 

the body of the 

Revd. jMoses Dickinson, 

Late pastor of the First Church of Christ 

in Norwalk, 

who departed this life May 1st, 1778, 

in the S3d year of his age 

and 51st of his ministry in sd. church. 

A man of a good understanding, 

well informed by study, 

Chearful in temper, Prudent in conduct, 

he came to his grave in full age 

like as a shock of corn cometh 

in his season. 

Dr. Marsh, who succeeded Rev. James Lockwood in the pastoral 
office at Wethersfield, in the sermon which he preached at the 
installation of his son, pays the following incidental tribute to 
the memory of his father : 

"May you continue throughout the whole course of your 
ministry strong in the grace which is in Christ Jesus ; exhibit- 
ing to a great degree of eminence that spirit of wisdom and piety, 
benevolence and fidelity for v/hicli the ascended prophet, your 
excellent fiither, was distinguished. His praise is still in the 
churches and his name remembered in this vicinity with particu- 
lar affection, honor, and veneration." 

Rev. Ezra Stiles, D.D., for many years President of Yale Col- 
lege, wrote thus concerning Mr. Lockwood, (Sprague's Annals, 
vol. 1, p. 413.) 

" He was a man of small stature, a good classical scholar, and 
ingenious in mathematics and philosophy, of a polite taste and a 
ready elocution ; he performed the ofiBce of the ministry in the 
house of God and among his i)eopIe with good acceptance. 


" He ^Yas a man of caution and prudence and avoided intermed- 
dling deeply -with any of the religious controver^^ies. Tliis cau- 
tion and wisdom, together with the goodness of his public per- 
formances, made the world think him a deeper and greater man 
than he really was. He was, however, an ingenious man, was 
formed for usefulness and was an honor to the ministrv. 

" He was a Calvinist, and more lately has been inclined to the 
new Divinity. He was a gentleman of sober deportment, carry- 
ing rather a grave severity in his countenance, and yet far from 
moroseness ; there was vivacity in his manner ; his cheerfulness 
was regulated .by prudence and circumspection. He was one of 
those good-natured persons who, through proper cultivation, soon 
come to maturity. Besides the academic sciences, he applied to 
systematic theology, and Ridgley and AYillard were his favorite 

" He spent his ministerial life in a large parish of perhaps £00 
families, who are said to be as well instructed in religion as any 
church in Connecticut. He has had the prudence to lead that 
flock in great peace and love through his ministry. 

" As a singular fact he preached and printed two election ser- 
mons, both of which I heard him deliver. I was intimately ac- 
quainted with him twenty-four years ago* and occasionally all 
along since." 

P. 15. In the Catalogue of Communicants derived from the 
Records appear from 1694 to 1738, some of them very odd.

Daggett, D.D., President pro tempore." 

Building Rev. James Lockwood's House by Subscriptiox_ 

Mr. James Lockwood, of the Case, Lockwood & Brainard 
Company, has come into possession of an ancient book, which is 
of special interest to him, as it records the subscriptions ior build- 
ing a in 1767 for his granditither, the Rev. James Lock- 
wood, of Wethcrsfield. The book was recently resurrected 
among papers in the office of the Wethersfield Town Clerk. It 


is made of sheets of paper, legal cap size, ruled with black ink 
(yet of good color) and -with a rough paper cover, upon which 
cover is written " Subscriptions for building an House for the 
Rev'd. James Lockwood." The accounts are in English money 
with regular debit and credit, each person being charged with his 
subscription and credited with cash, articles or work, the latter 
being rated at 94 cents per day. Some are credited with work 
on the building, either by themselves or their employes, includ- 
ing negroes in several instances. Captain Samuel Eose subscribed 
£10, and is credited with £o, ISs. 9d. for 32J gallons rum at 3.?. 
Gd. Captain Rose not having supplied all the rum he had 
promised, Mr. John Smith helped to maintain the spiritual enthu- 
siasm in erecting the building by donating an extra gallon of rum 
— and probably better rum, for the committee gave him credit 
for 4s. for it. A number of the subscriptions were paid in part 
only. The reverend gentleman was a prominent divine in his 
day, and was at one time offered the presidency of Yale College, 
but did not accept. The house was nearly opposite the present 
Baptist church in Wethersfield. (Clipped from a newspaper, 
1888.) |j 

From Prof. F. B. Dexter's biographical sketches of Yale Col- 1 

;Iege, etc., from 1701-1745. | 

P. 538-539. James Lockwood "remained at college after 1 

graduation as a scholar on Dean Berkeley's foundation, and from ' 

September, 1737, to November, 1738, served as tutor." ^ 

" His declination in the latt'jr case was nominally on account ; 

of age and infirmities and the difficulty of release from his '? 

church, but really is, as President Stiles was informed by the Rev. ;' 

George Beckwith, from the want of an assured pecuniary support 
in the Presidency. He died, in office, in 'Wether&field, after a J 

long and painful decline, July 20th, 1772, aged 57J years." 

" He was married November 4th, 1742, to Mary, daughter of 
Rev. Moses Dickinson (Yale College, 1717), of Norsvalk, who 
bore him .'^ix sons and six daughters, and died December 23d, 
1774, aged 53. Two sons graduated at Yale College in 1766 
and 1774, and one daughter married Simeon Belden." (Y. C,

Dear Sir: You will find in Professor Dexter's "Biograph. 
Sketches and Annals of Yale College," which may be seen at the 
Phi]adGl[)hia and at the Pennsylvania Hist. Society Libraries, 
page 638, a sketch of James Lockwood and a list of his pub- 
lished sermons (6) and the libraries where they may be found. 

We had three of them, but they are bound with other rare 
pam]>hlets and could not be replaced, and we shall not therefore 
feel justified in loaning them. They can of course be freely con- 
sulted here. 

Samuel Lockwood published but one sermon, " Civil Rulers 
an Ordinance of God for Good to Mankind : A [Connecticut 
Election] Sermon, May 12th, 1774." (New London, 1774, Svo,

My Dear Sir : The passage in Green's Historical discourses 
referred to by W. B. Sprague in his Annals respecting which 
you make inquires is probably this: p. 327. 

It is an extract from the records, dated 19ih April, 1758. 

" The presidentship of the college having become vacant by 
the death of the late president Edwards ; the trustees after 
prayers and deliberate consideration do elect the Rev. Mr. James 
Lockwood, of Wethersfield in the colony of Connecticut to be 
the president of the college; and the clerk is ordered to write a 
letter to the said Mr. Lockwood, informing him of the said elec- 
tion, and recjuesting his acceptance; and Mr. Spencer, one of the 
members of this corporation, is desired to wait on the said Mr. 
Lockwood and deliver him the letter. It is ordered that the 
expenses attending the moving of Mr. Lockwood's family to this 
place, be paid by the treasurer." 

Yours, respectfully", 

Frederic Vinton, 

Librarian, C. N. J. 

Rev. Jame.s Lockwood — 173S-1772. 

Sprague's Annals of the American Pulpit, vol i., p. 413. This 
was written by President Stiles, of Yale College. James Lock- 
wood was the eldpst son of James and Lydia Lockwood (Robert,' 
Ephraim,^ James'), and was born at Norwalk, Conn., December 
20th, 1714. He was graduated at Yale College, in 1735, and 
was chosen tutor in the same institution, two years afterwards, 
in which capacity he served one year. Having, in the meantime, 
studied theology, and received a license to preach, he was called 
to succeed the Rev. Stephen Mix, as pastor of the First Church 
in Wethersfield, Conn. He accepted the call and was ordained 
on the 28th day of February, 1739. 

Mr. Lockwood's settlement occurred just before the commence- 
ment of the great revival of 1740. Dr. Trumbull mentions him 
among the ministers most favorable to Whitefield's movements; 
and there is a tradition at Wethersfield, that the great itinerant 


made several visits there, and that, as the meeting-house was in- 
adequate to contain the multitude who thronged to hear him, he 
held a meeting, at least on one occasion, in the open air. There 
is no doubt that Mr. Lockwood not only fully sympathized with 
him, but co-operated with him to the extent of his ability. 

In 1760, he was chosen a fellow of Yale College, and continued 
to hold the office till his death. In 1758, the Presidency of the 
College of New Jersey, having been vacated by the death of 
Jonathan Edwards, Mr. Lockwood was chosen to fill the place; 
but he declined the appointment. After the resignation of Presi- 
dent Clap, in 1766, the same office was proferred to him in Yale 
College, but he declined this also. The reason given for his non- 
acceptance in both cases, was his strong attachment to the people 
of his charge, and his consequent unwillingness to separate him- 
self from them. He continued their pastor, greatly respected and 
beloved, till the close of life. He died, July 20th, 1772, in the 
58th year of his age, and the 34th of his ministry. 

Mr. Lockwood was married, November 4th, 1742, to Mary, 
daughter of the Rev. Moses Dickinson, of Norwalk, who died 
December 23d, 1774, aged 54. One of his' sons, ""William,'' 
was born January 21st, 1753 ;* was graduated at Yale College, in 
1774, was a tutor in college in 1779 and 1780; was ordained 
pastor of the church at INIilford, March 17th, 1784; was dis- 
missed on account of ill health, April 2Sth, 1796 ; was installed 
pastor of the church, in Glastenbury, in 1797, where he continued 
his labors till 1804, when he v/as obliged again and finally to 
withdraw from the ministry on account of bodily infirmity. He 
passed the residue of his days, at Glastenbury, greatly respected, 
and died, June 23d, 1828. He published a sermon on the death 
of Mrs. Jerasha Woodbridge, 1799. Dr. Marsh, who succeeded 
the Rev. James Lockwood, in the pastoral office, at Wethersfield, 
in the sermon which he preached at the installation of the son, 
pays the following incidental tribute to the memory of the 
father : 

" May you continue, through the whole course of your min- 
istry, strong in the grace which is in Christ Jesus ; exhibiting to 

* See Green's History of Princeton College. See Kingsley's History of 
Yale College. 






a great degree of eminence, thiit spirit of wisdona and piety, 
benevolence and fidelity, for which the ascended prophet, your 
excellent father, was distinguished. His praise is still in the 
churches, and his name remembered in this vicinity, with particu- 
lar atfection, honor, and veneration." 

The following are Mr. Lockwood's publications : A Sermon 
at the General Election, 1754. A Discourse on the death of the 
Hon. Colonel Williams, 1755. A Sermon at the ordination of 
Eleazar May,* 1756. A Sermon at the General Election, 1763.

died Saturday, June 18th, 1791, at New Lebanon Springs, Con- 
necticut, in the 70th year of his age, and the 43d of his ministry. 
Son of James and Lidia (Smith) Lockwood. Not long after he 
settled in Andover, he married at Andover, Connecticut, Anne 
May, of Wethersfield, Connecticut; she died March 7th, 1799, 
in the 76th year of her age. (s. p.) 


Rev. Samuel Lockwood, D.D., of Andover, Connecticut, who 
graduated Yale College, 1745, and died June 18th, 1791. Seven 
others of the name had graduated at Yale in 1826. 

He adopted and educated his nephew, a sou of his brother, the 
Rev. James Lockwood, of Wetherstield. 

An ecclesiastical society in Andover, Connecticut, was formed 
in 1747. In 1748 the parish voted "to hire him to preach as a 
probationer." He was ordained their pastor February 25th, 
1749, O.S. The ordination sermou preached by his brother 
aforesaid, of "Wethersfield. He continued in the faithful dis- 
charge of the duties of his pastoral office for a period of upwards 
of 40 years. In 1790 he received the degree of Doctor of 
Divinity from Yale College. 

He regretted that it had been conferred upon him. He was 
however warmly attached to the college; was one of its Fellows 
from 1777 to 1791, and made a liberal donation in aid of its 
library and philosophical apparatus. In 1774 he preached the 
annual sermon before the Legislature of the state; a judicious, 
patriotic and well adapted discourse, and was printed. 

In 1791 by medical advice he visited a mineral spring at New 
Lebanon, Connecticut, in the hope that the water might prove 
beneficial to him. But in this both himself and friends were dis- 
appointed ; very soon the afflictive tidings came back to his people 
that he was no longer among the living. 

His funeral was attended at New Lebanon, on ^Monday, June 
20th, 1791, by a large concourse of people, including a number 
of the neighboring clergy; and a sermon was preached on the 
occasion by Rev. Mr. Benedict, from 2 Chron. xxiv., 15 and 16. 
His remains were carried to Andover for burial, where they still 
repose, in the bosom of his mouldering congregation. 

The hand of affection hath inscribed on his tomb-stone the 
following epitaph : 

" He was a firm advocate for the doctrines of grace and for 
evangelical purity of religion. He fulfilled the work of ministry 
with ability, zeal and fiiithfulness. To soundness in the faith he 
added exemplary piety and holiness of life." 

It is stated that the Rev. Mr. Colton, a worthy but eccentric 
minister of the neighboring parish of Bolton, Conn., when he 


exchanged with Dr. Lockwood's successor shortly after his settle- 
ment, remarked in his sermon, with more frankness and possibly 
more truth than delicacy, '"'There is not another such minister any- 
where in these parts as the one you have lost." 

Vol. 14, p. 255. Ordertid May, 1774, " That Eliphalet Dyer 
and Phineas Strong, Esquires, return the thanks of this Assembly 
to the Rev. Samuel Lockwood for his sermon delivered before 
the Assembly on the 12th inst., and desire of copy thereof that 
it may be printed." And on p. 192. "In 1789, Rev. Samuel 
Lockwood, D.D., gave ilOO to the college for philosophical ap- 
paratus, and after his death the college received under his will 
£1100, . Dr. Lockwood was a graduate of the class of 1745, and 
a member of the corporate board for fourteen years until his death 
in 1791." And on page 185. "In 1791, Rev. Samuel Lock- 
wood, of Andover, Conn., gave $1122 towards a permanent fund 
for the library." (History of Yale College.)

Mention is made of "a gift by Rev. Dr. Samuel Lockwood, 
of Andover, of £336, l-is., and some time before of £100 to Yale 
College." (Historical account of the City of New Haven, Conn.,

REV. SAMUEL LOCKWOOD, D.D., 1747-1791. 

Sprague's Annals, etc., vol. 1, p. 465. Samuel Lockwood was 
descended from a highly respectable family, and was born at 
Norwalk, Conn., November 30th, 1721. He was the son of 
James and Lydia (Smith) Lockwood. He was graduated at 
Yale College in 1745. He pursued his theological studies under 
the direction of his brother, the Rev. James Lockwood, who had 
at that time been settled for several years as pastor of the church 
in Wethersfield. 

An ecclesiastical society in Andover, Conn., having been formed 
in 1747 from the three towns of Coventry, Lebanon and Hebron, 
Mr. Lockwood, shortly after he was licensed to preach, was em-

ployed by that society as a candidate for settlement. He com- 
menced his labors there about the beginning of 174S, when the 
parish voted " to hire him to preach as a probationer," they 
passed this additional, and, as it would seem at this day, super- 
fluous vote, that " Mr. Lockwood may change with any orthodox 
minister to preach to us when he shall see cause." Having after 
the manner of those days undergone a long probation among 
them as a candidate, he was ordained as pastor February 25th, 
1749, O. S., the church having been constituted on the preceding 
day. The ordination sermon was preached by his brother the 
minister of \yethersfield. He continued in the faithful dis- 
charge of the duties of his office upwards of forty years. 

As he always lived in a retired country parish, there was little 
of incident in his history, and the little that there was has nearly 
all passed away with the generation that was contemporary with 

In 1 790 he received the degree of Doctor of Divinity from 
Yale College. It is said that he was not flattered, but pained 
by the honor, and that he expressed to some of his friends a deep 
sense of its worthlessness, and his regret that it had been con- 
ferred upon him. He was, however, warmly attached to the 
college, was one of its Fellow's from 1777 to 1791, and made a 
liberal donation in aid of its library and philosophical apparatus. 

In 177-1 he was appointed to preach the annual sermon before 
the Legislature of the State, and though there is nothing in it to 
indicate remarkable powers of mind, it is, nevertheless, a judi- 
cious, patriotic and well-adapted discourse. It is the only 
acknowledged production of his that was ever printed. 

In 1791 an enfeebled state of health obliged him to desist from 
his labors, and by medical advice he visited the mineral springs 
at New Lebanon in the hope that the waters might prove bene- 
ficial to him. But in this both himself and his friends were 
disappointed ; for after he had been there a short time his disease 
assumed an aggravated form, and very soon the afilicting tidings 
came back to his people that he was no longer among the living. 
He died on Saturday the 18th of June, in the 70th year of his 
age, and the 43d of his ministry. His funeral was attended at 
New Lebanon, on the Monday after his death, by a large con- 


course of people, among whom were a number of the neighhbor- 
ing clergy, and a sermon was preached on the occasion by the 
Rev, Mr. Benedict from 2 Chron. xxiv., 15, 16. In a letter 
addressed to his wife a few days before his death, he says, "Be 
not surprised that I tell you that you will see me no more in this 
world. I am very near death ; a day or two more is all I can 
expect; I feel comfortably resigned and hope to sleep in Jesus; 
I recommend you, my dear, to the mercy of God in Christ Jesus 
as the only ground of hope. The Rev, Dr. Williams (of East 
Hartford) has been very attentive and exceedingly kind to me, 
as some little acknowledgement of it, I desire when you see this, 
that you will make him a present of ray best boots and spurs, 
my walking staff and wig. He will pay my debts here, if my 
cash holds out, and take care of the rest I have here. My love 
to my dear people. I hope to meet many of them in Heaven as 
my crown and joy. I hope and trust that you will meet me in 
Heaven and part no more." 

His remains were carried to Andover for burial, where they 
still repose in the bosom of his mouldering congregation. The 
hand of affection hath inscribed on his tombstone, "Pie was a 
firm advocate for the doctrines of grace, and for evangelical 
purity of religion. He fulfilled the work of the ministry with 
ability, zeal and faithfulness. To soundness in the faith he added 
exemplary piety and holiness of life." 

I am not aware that there is any individual now living whose 
recollections of Dr. Lockwood are sufficiently intelligent and 
minute to form the basis of a faithful sketch of his character. 
But, as I was myself a native of the parish which was the scene 
of his labors, as there was an interval of only four years between 
the time of his death and the time of my birth, and as I was 
constantly conversant in the earlier part of my life with those 
who had grown up or grown old under his ministry, I feel that 
I shall be in little danger of mistaking materially in respect to 
the more prominent traits that distinguished him. I have always 
heard him represented as a man of commanding influence in the 
sphere in which he moved. His person, his countenance, and 
especially his piercing eye and strong intelligent expression, 
together with his general bearing in society, were all fitted to 


command respect. Though he was ready enough to unbend on 
all suitable occasions, and at weddings particularly was always a 
most entertaining and welcome guest, yet he never forgot the 
dignity of his ofBce, or suffered his people to forget the respect 
that was due to it. He moved about among them, not only as a 
spiritual guide, but as a father caring for his children. In the 
things of the world — things pertaining to their ordinary vocations 
— he was wiser than they, and it was seldom that they appealed 
from his judgment or acted contrary to it. For their spiritual 
interests he evinced a watchful and exemplary regard. There 
were several seasons in the course of his ministry which were 
marked by special attention to religion and by considerable addi- 
tion to the church, and at the time of his death no ecclesiastical 
society in the country was in a more flourishing state than that 
over which he presided. Without ever taking an active part in 
the political concerns of the country, he was in principle a de- 
cided Whig during the Revolution, and as his manuscript 
sermons still in existence show, preached not unfrequently what 
might be called highly patriotic discourses. 

As a preacher he must have ranked much above mediocrity. 
His manner in the pulpit is said to have been marked by gravity 
rather than vivacity ; and his sermons (as I know from the 
perusal of many of them in manuscript) were distinguislied more 
for clear, strong, and well-digested thought than for beautiful 
conceptions or an attractive style. His own congregation, I be- 
lieve, generally regarded him as scarcely having an equal in the 
pulpit: for I well remember that the highest expression of ap- 
probation that I used to hear from some of the old people in re- 
spect to any minister, was, that he preached almost as well as Mr. 
Lockwood. His orthodoxy was that of the Assembly's Cate- 
chism ; and even the speculations of Dr. Hopkins, which had 
begun to divide the churches in his day, he looked upon with 
strong disapprobation. During the earlier part of his ministry, 
he was accustomed to write his sermons at full length, and read 
them from the manuscript; but after awhile he began to abridge, 
and continued to abridge more and more, until, before the close 
of his ministry, his whole sermon was not unfrequently brought 
within the limits of three or four small duodecimo pages; and he 


used to say that he could produce a sermon more satisfactory to 
himself in four hours, in the later period of his ministry, than in 
four days at the beginning. 

In the neighboring congregations, and in the State at large, 
he had a high reputation, especially for integrity and wisdom ; 
and, as an evidence of it, I remember to have heard that the Rev. 
Mr. Colton, a worthy but eccentric minister of the neighboring 
parish of Bolton, when he exchanged with Dr. Lockwood's suc- 
cessor shortly after his settlement, remarked in his sermon, 
with more frankness and possibly more truth than delicacy, — 
" There i? not another such minister anywhere in these parts as 
the one you have lost." 

Dr. Lockwood was married, not long after his settlement at 
Andover, to Anne May, of "Wethersfield. They had no children. 
He, however, adopted and educated a son of his brother. Rev. 
James Lockwood, of Wethersfield, to whom he had been much 
indebted in the early part of his course. Mrs. Lockwood tlied 
March 7th, 1799, in the 76th year of her age. 

Life, Journals and Correspondence of Rev. Manasseh Cutter, 
vol. 1, 1888, pp. 311-312. From his Diary of July 29th, 1787. 

Sunday, July 29th. — " Dined with Mr. Walker and set out 
immediately for Stratford. Bill at Blackleach's, 2s. 8d. Fer- 
riage at Stratford ferry, 2.s, Barber, Is. Arrived at Stratford just 
as the bell began to ring. Put up my horse at Glinuey's, next 
door to the Meeting House. My classmate, Buckingham, saw 
me as I rode up. He came to me and told me Mr. Lockwood 
was just going into the Meeting House, but he would conduct 
me to the pulpit, and begged I would preach for him. I excused 
myself, and insisted on the favor of taking a seat with him. He 
conducted me into his pew, which was not far from the pulpit, 
while Mr. Lockwood was reading the Psalm. As soon as he 
had done (I took care not to look towards him), but perceived a 
shuffling of his feet, and, casting my eye up, found he was mak- 
ing signs, but I was determined not to regard him, and appre- 
hending I might have no notes in ray pocket, he concluded it 
would be in vain. He did not fail, however, to give me a pretty 
smart scolding after meeting. This is a very large assembly; 
there are two tiers of galleries, and the house was very full. 


The congregation appeared exceedingly well. Mr. liOckwood 
gave us a very pretty sermon. I am pleaded to find that the 
reading the Scriptures as a part of public worship is universally 
practiced in this part of the country, which formerly was not the 
case," etc. 

" After meeting INIr. Lockwood insisted that we should take 
tea with him, but Esquire Buckingham urged exceedingly that 
we should go to his house — however, he dually consented to go 
with Lockwood. We spent a couple of hours very agreeably. 
I then took my leave, though not without being exceedingly im- 
portuned to tarry the night. But I answered them the reason of 
my riding at all on Sunday was the absolute necessity of reach- 
ing home that week, which I could not possibly do unless I went 
as far as New Haven that night."

Note. — Daniel Lockwood was a man of wealth and impor- 
tance, he owned 1000 acres of land in his native town, his pos- 
sessions extending from river to river. He left the bulk of his 
property to his elder son John. It sounds strangely to say 100 
years after Daniel Lockwood's death that he owned slaves in Con- 
necticut, but such was the case; it is stated on family tradition, that 
one of his slaves tried to get him into a lonely place at night in 
order that he might kill him. 


Daniel Lockwood was a stanch Churchman, and as such 
obeyed the teachings of his mother, the Church, which interpreted 
literally the words "Fear God, honor the King," so when the 
Revolutionary War broke out he remained loyal to King George, 
although he took no active part in suppressing what from his point 
-of view was rebellion. 

His Presbyterian neighbors, however, were not so liberal-minded, 
and drove away his cattle, carried off his handsome looking-glasses 
with other household furniture, and even inflicted personal injury 
■upon him, one of them. Captain Sam. Lockwood, breaking his 
teeth. Charles Lockwood, second son of Daniel, then a lad of 18, 
■resented these indignities, and, arming himself with a stout stick, 
at once repaired to the house of Captain Sam. for satisfaction, and, 
finding him, said, " I have come to get a receipt for your knocking 
my father's teeth down his throat," and raised his club; at which 
the Captain retired behind a chair which he elevated. The de- 
scending club broke the chair into fragments. Then the Cap- 
tain shouted at the top of his voice " murder," which soon brought 
in his Whig neighbors to the rescue. The young avenger of his 
father's wrongs, knowing that they were about to take him prisoner, 
retreated to a corner of the room and said, " Gentlemen, I have no 
wish to harm a hair of your heads, but by the living God the first 


man that lays a hand on me is a dead man ; " at which the men, five 
or six in number, separated on either side and allowed him to pass 
through their midst out of the house unharmed. He soon after 
thought it prudent to go to Long Island, where he remained until 
the close of the war.

"The firmness of the indefotigable Capt. Samuel Lockwood 
(by whose vigilance both by night and day, with forty men and 
a twelve pounder, in a gondola, eleven armed vessels with 
General Prescott, one hundred and thirty officers and soldiers, 
and one hundred and thirty seamen were taken at Sorel)," etc., 
" has not only crowned tbera with honor as soldiers, but entitles 
them to the applause of their bleeding country," and " among 
those taken prisoners, December 31st, 1775, and not exchanged 
on May 18th, 1776, is Capt. Samuel Lock wood." (From Force's

Dear General : I beg leave to recommend to your particu- 
lar notice, the following gentlemen who were taken at Quebec, 
and lately returned on their parole, viz.. Major Lamb and Cap- 
tain Lockwood, of the Artillery, Lieut. Col. Oswald, and Cap- 
tain IMorgan. The two last went with me from Cambridge. 
They have all distinguished themselves for their bravery, and 
attachment to the publick cause, and will, I make no doubt, be 
very useful hereafter and do honour to the commissions they 
may hold. If it is not inconsistent with your engagements, I 


beg they may be among the first who are exchanged. On the 
3d, the enemy began to embark at Crown Point, etc. I am, 
with sentiments of perfect esteem and respect, dear General, your 
affectionate and most obedient humble servent. 


His Excellency, George Washington, Esq., General, and Com- 
mander in Chief of the United States of America, Head 
Quarters, King's Bridge. 

In Force's Annals, p. ]570. At a meeting of the Continen- 
tal Congress, iSTovember 15th, 1776, a memorial was read from 
Samuel Lockwood, and referred to the Board of War (see page 
1577). On November 20th, 1776, the Board of War, to whom 
was referred the memorial from Captain Lockwood and Captain 
Oswald, brought in a report which was taken into consideration ; 
whereupon it was " Resolved, That such parts of the said me- 
morials, as relate to their pay, be referred to the Board of 
Treasury; and on Thursday, November 21st, 1776 (p. 1578)," 
the Committee of Treasury reported that there is due to Lieut.

Capt. Samuel Lockwood, of the Second Artillery, afterwards 
became captain of a whale-boat, in Long Island Sound. Moses 
Lockwood was a gunner with Capt. Samuel Lockwood, and lost 
his eye by an accident. lie was a farmer from Lower Salem, 
Westchester County, N. Y. ; and granted a pension in 1782. 

"Four transports arrived at Elizabethtown from Quebec, 
October 5th, 177G, with (420) four hundred and twenty Ameri- 
cans who had been prisoners, in Canada, and among the officers 
from Connecticut, was Capt. Samuel Lockwood." (N. Y. Ar- 
chives, p. 244. Hollister's Ily., p. 295, vol. 2.) 

Captain Saiaiuel Lockwood. 

" The Jarvis family were excellent and prominent people here, 
but their aiiections were with their king rather than with his 
rebellious subjects. When therefore it seemed necessary that his 
family should be sent over the line, Capt. Samuel Lockwood, 
of Greenwich, was appointed to execute the order. This he did 
with the ready zeal of a revolutionary patriot; and of course his 
ofificiousness alienated the two families. No royal Jarvis could 
thenceforth endure one of the notoriously rebellions Lockwood 
tribe. But the years roll on and work strange cures as well as 
ao-o-ravate maladies not to be healed. A grandson of the inex- 
orable captain was won to a surrender by the maidenly graces of 
a granddaughter of the courtly royalist, and so ftir, at least, 
the old feud was healed as the family of our worthy citizen, 
Judge Ferris, will attest." (Ily. Stamford, pp. 214 and 215.) 

In vol. 6 of the Rhode Island Historical Collections, Cap- 
tain Thayer, in his journal, says: 

"Among the officers that were taken at Quebec, was Capt. 
Samuel Lockwood ;" and the journal of Col. John Topham says, 
December 31st, 1775, " The names of the officers killed, wounded 
and taken are— Killed : The brave Gen. Richard Montgomery, 
and others. Among the wounded and taken prisoners, Captain 
Samuel Lockwood, remarking, ' and here we spent a solitary 
New Year's Day.' " And subsequently says : 


Captain Samuel Lockwood. 

" January 5th, 1776. Seeing no hopes of relief, "we unani- 
mously resolved to make our escape, if possible ; accordingly, 
we curried the favor of one of the sentinels, who we found will- 
ing to be of our party, having informed us of the situation of the 
garrison, the strength of our forces, and the General's name. In 
consequence, amongst the number of officers. Captain Lockwood 
and myself were pitched upon to make our escape. Accordingly, 
we sounded Joe," etc., who furnished them with clubs and coun- 
tersigns, and they were to pass out of the chamber window, 
four stories high, " by means of our blankets. Mr. Lockwood, 
standing in the gangway to notify me of any persons coming, 
observed the officer on guard advancing towards us " where they 
were all locked in one room, etc., etc., and on the 30th, "to my 
surprise. Captains Lockwood and Hanchet were detected in in- 
quiring of Joe some particulars concerning me and where I was, 
etc. The Captains were sent to accompany me, where we re- 
mained in the most lamentable situation until the 6th of May, 
etc., when they were sent back to their former prison," etc. 

" The prisoners sent a petition to the British General, asking 
to go on Parole on June 7th, 1776, and Captain Samuel Lock- 
wood, of Greenwich, Conn., signed among the others." 

" Xew Haven, November 24th, 1779, Monday, sen' nit (Sun- 
day night), two small privateers of 4 Guns, each commanded by 
Captains Lockwood and Johnson, ran into Oyster Bay under 
British Colors, where were four wood vessels under protection of 
a large 8 Gun Brig, who asked the privateers' where from?' and 
on being answered ' from Xew York,' they were permitted to 
run alongside the Brig unsuspected ; and boarding her, the crew 
were surprised into an immediate surrender without even firing 
a gun, though manned with 20 stout fellows ; on which the other 
vessels also submitted, and were all brought out of port, destined 
for Norwalk or Stamford, but on being pursued by some armed 
vessels from Huntingdon Harbor, the Brig unluckily run on a 
reef of rocks near Xorwalk Harbor, and fell again into the 
enemy's hands, who got her off" and took her away. The other 

128 de3Cexda>:ts of eobert lockwood, 

prizes got safe into port," (H. Onderdonk's Documents and 
Letters of Revolutionary Incidents of Queens Co., New York, 
p. 218.) 

" Before September 14th, 1780, Captain Lockwood took from 
L. I. Cable and Ludlam." (P. 89.) 

"Fishkill, December 9th, 1779. On the evening of Novem- 
ber 4th, about 25 volunteers under Captains Hawley, Lockwood, 
and Jones, Lieutenants Jackson and Bishop, crossed the Sound 
from Newfield (since called Bridgeport) to Stony Brook, near 
Smithtown, and marched to the house of the Hon. Thomas Jones, 
Justice of the Supreme Court of New York at Fort Neck 
(Thomas F. Jones), where they arrived about 9 o'clock on the 
evening of the 6th — hiding in the woods by day. The whole 
distance was 52 miles. There was a ball in the house, and the 
noise of music and dancing prevented the approach of the ad- 
venturers being heard. 

" Captain Hawley knocked at the door, and receiving no 
answer forced it open, and found Judge Jones standing in the 
entry. He told him he was his prisoner, and immediately con- 
ducted him off, and also a young man named Hewlett. A guard 
of soldiers was posted at a small distance from their road. Wlien 
they came near the spot, the Judge hemmed very loudly, but was 
forbidden to repeat it. He did, however, but on being further 
threatened desisted. An alarm arose, which obliged the men to 
retreat rapidly, travelling thirty miles the same night, and to 
secrete themselves the next day, by which time the British Light 
Horse were near. Tiie next evening they reached their boats, 
having taken two prisoners more, and arrived safely at Black 
Eock, Fairfield, Connecticut, on the 8th, excepting six men in 
the rear, who were overtaken and captured by the light horse. 
Judge Jones was taken to Middletown, and "in May, 1780, was 
exchanged for General Silliman, a prisoner at Flatbush. Mr. 
Hewlett was exchanged for the General's son, one Washburn 
being thrown in as a make weight. After the exchange the Judge 
and the General dined together." (H. Onderdonk's Doc. and 
Letters of Rev'y Incidents of Queens Co., N. Y., p. 218 ; also

Capt. Samuel Lockwood Commanded one of these 
Whale Boats. 

The village of Stonybrook has one of the best harbors on Long 
Island. !N'ear the village of Corum the British had accumulated 
a large quantity of forage for the winter of 1780, which was de- 
stroyed by Colonel Tallmadge. The plan of this expedition was 
approved of by a communicatiou from General AVashington. 

"In pursuance of this communication, Major Tallmadge or- 
dered the detachment to repair to Fairfield. Here being met by 
other troops, the party embarked, the 21st of November, 1780, 
at four o'clock p.m., in eight whale boats. The whole number, 
including the crews of tlie boats, amounted to eighty men. They 
crossed the Sound in four hours, and landed at Old Mans at 
nine o'clock. The troops had marched about five miles, when, 
it beginning to rain, they returne-d and took shelter under their 
boats, and lay concealed in the bashes all that night and the next 
day. At evening, the rain abating, the troops were again put in 
motion, and at three o'clock i-a the morning were within two 
miles of the fort. 

" Here he divided his men into three parties, ordering each to 
attack the fort at the same time at different points. The order 
was so well executed that the three divisions arrived nearly at 
the same moment. It was a triangular enclosure of several acres, 
strongly stockaded, well barricaded, houses at two of the angles, 
and at the third a fort, with a deep ditch and wall, encircled by an 
abatis of sharpened pickets, projecting at an angle of forty-five 
degrees. The stockade was cut down, the column led through 
the grand parade, and in ten minutes the main fort was carried 
by the bayonet. The vessels near the fort, laden with stores, 
attempted to escape, but the guns of the fort being brought to 
bear upon them, they were secured and burnt, as were the works 
and stores. The number of prisoners was fifty-four, of whom 
seven were wounded. ^Yhile they were marched to the boats 
under an escort, Major Tallmadge proceeded with the remainder 
of his detachment, destroyed about three hundred tons of hay 
collected at Corum, aud returned to the place of debarkation just 
as the party with the prisonei^ had arrived, and reached Fairfield 
by eleven o'clock the same evening ; having accomplished the 


enterpi'ise, inclucUng a march of forty miles by land and as much 
by water, without the loss of a man. Congress passed a resolve 
complimentary to the commander and troops engaged in this ex- 
pedition, which was said by them to have been planned and con- 
ducted with wisdom and great gallantry by Major Tallmadge, 
and executed with intrepidity and complete success by the officers 
and soldiers of his detachment." (Barber and Howe's His. Coll. 
of Xew York, p. 535.) 

" Pel eg Red field served in the Connecticut Line, from 1780 
until 1782, under Captain LocJcwood, whose company formed 
part of General Waterbury's Brigade. He assisted in what de- 
fense was made to save New Haven from the marauding expedi- 
tion under Tryon and Garth in July, 1779, and saw the flames 
arising from the burning of East Haven. While under Captain 
LochwoocVs command he was one of a detachment which was sent 
out in January, 1780, with orders to cut off Delancy's dragoons, 
and a band of tories under Colonel Hatfield, who had their head- 
quarters at Morrisania. Delancy and his dragoons were absent, 
but Colonel Hatfield and eleven tories were taken after a desper- 
ate resistance, with a large amount of booty. In 1781 his regi- 
ment lay at White Plains, in full view of the allied armies, and 
he saw them strike their tents for the purpose of joining Lafay- 
ette in the siege of Yorktown, while the brigade to which he be- 
longed was ordered back to Connecticut to guard the coast from 
invasion and to watch the movements of the tories."*

Copied from papers in U. S. Pension Office, by F. A. H. 


It appears from a family record and living witnesses in April, 
1818, that he was born June 21st, 1760, and died in New Mil- 
ford, Connecticut, December 24th, 1841. Resided in Greenwich, 
Connecticut, during Revolutionary War. Enlisted by Lieut. 
Henry Waring in February, 1777, for three years, under Capt. 
Samuel Lock wood, who was succeeded by Capt. Stephens in the 
2d Artillery, Xew York Regiment, commanded by Colonel John 
Lamb, and was discharged at Morristown, New Jersey, after three 
years' service. Samuel Lockwood, of New Milford, a son of his 
Captain, was a witness in 1819 when he applied for a pension. 

In July, 1820, his family consisted of his wife, a son, Cliarles, 
aged about 16 years. Has had aid from his relatives, particu- 
larly Roswell Lockwood. Sarah Clason, born January 25th, 
1762, appears to have been his wife. His widow, Sarah, lived 
in New Milford; states that her husband was taken prisoner 
while serving on board a ichale boat, called also a gunboat; he 
was detained about three months, and afterwards served under 
Capt. Henry Waring in several alarms. 

Hannah Ford, in 1844, of Greenwich, aged 75 years, states 
she was a neighbor of Daniel Lock wood's, and when about 11 or 
12 years old, was present at his marriage at the house of Samuel 
Lockwood, his father, by Col. Charles Webb, of Stamford, then 
a Justice of the Peace. Samuel Lockwood, the father of Mrs. 
Ford, had the command of a gunboat stationed at Greenwich 
during the war, and she recollects with great certainty that her 
Uncle David was on a gunboat under Capt. Samuel Lockwood, 
after his marriage, and David was brother to Samuel. 

Mrs. Ford further says : " My uncle, David Lockwood, ac- 
companied mv father, Capt. S:irauel Lockwood, in the gunboat 
across the Sound to Long Island, to get my brother, who had 
been left there, at the time my Uncle David was wounded in the 
thioh bv a nunket ball."

August 15th, 1844, Mary Winas says her sister Esther Town- 
send, m. 1, Jeremiah Mead, m. 2, Timothy Lockwood by Elder 
Nathan Cole, a Baptist minister, at the town of South East, in 
Dutchess County, now Putnam County, in the State of New 
York. She subsequently m. 3, Levi Miller. 

October 6th, 1844, Esther lived in Macomb County, Michigan, 


in tlie township of "Wa-^hington, aged 83 years and 6 months. 
She was widow of Timothy Lockwood who enlisted in the army 
when about 17 years old. I have heard him often say he was 
in the battle of White Plains (that occurred October 28th, 1776), 
with the army at Valley Forge, and also that he was in a fore 
which was taken by the British (probably Fort Washington, 
which was captured November 16th, 1776) near New York, 
through the treason of the Adjutant of Col. Magaw's Eegiment. 
Mr, Lockwood escaped from the fort and was not taken prisoner. 
I have heard him say that one Samuel Lockwood was his Captain, 
and that my husband lived at Horse Neck. I have heard him 
say that he was a drummer in Washington's Life Guard, and a 
drummer while at Valley Forge. My husband also enlisted in 
the navy sometime during the war, and sailed in the ship Trum- 
bull on her first voyage. The Captain's name was James Nick- 
erson. In the first engagement the ships were both almost 
reduced to wrecks. They separated, and the Trumbull went to 
Boston, I think, to repair; afterwards in that, or some other 
ship, he took two or three prizes. They took the prizes to 
Philadelphia where Mr. Lockwood was taken sick. I have also 
heard him say he was in the service the most of the time for 
seven years. I was married to Timothy Lockwood in January, 
1784, the 13th or 14th day. I then resided in a town called 
Fredericksburg, which lay on Croton River about thirty miles 
above White Plains. My said husband died March 12th, 1813, 
in the town of Ments, Cayuga County, New York. 

At Greenwich, July 18th, 1844, personally appeared Ebenezer 
Jessup in his 80th year, stated he was well acquainted with a 
man by the name of Timothy Lockwood in the time of the 
Revolutionary War, he was a drummer in a company commanded 
by Capt. Samuel Lockwood, and Henry Waring was Lieutenant. 

At Greenwich, July 18th, 1844. Personally appeared Hannah 
Ford in her 76th year, and stated she was well acquainted with 
a man by the name of Timothy Lockwood in the time of the 
Revolutionary War, that he belonged to a company that hei- 
father commanded, viz., Capt. Samuel Lockwood. She thinks 
he served in said company as a drummer. 

Timothy Lockwood, December 26th, 1781, was paid £21,, 


and at that time was iu a compauy commanded by Capt. Daniel 
Williams, Col. Albert Pawlings' Regiment. (U. S. Pension

Joshua Lockwood, of Poundridge, was chosen by the free- 
holders and inhabitants of "Westchester County, X. Y., one of 
the committee for said county from the second Monday in May, 
1776, to the second jNIonday in May, 1777. 

In the course of the year 1782 John Matthews, E-^quire, 
Governor of South Carolina, concerted measures with some of 
the citizens of Charlestown who wished to make their peace with 
their countrymen, for sending out of the British lines necessary 
clothing for the almost naked Continentals. 

When their distress had nearly arrival to the point beyond 
which human nature can bear no more, Mr. Joshua Lockwood 
under the direction of the Governor Matthews brought out of 
Charlestown a large quantity of the articles which were most 
needed iu the American Camp. This seasonable supply, though 
much short of their due, quieted the minds of the suifering 

Tranquillity and good order were restored in the Camp and 
duty was cheerfully performed. It is impossible to do justice to 
that invincible fortitude which was displayed by both officers 
and men in the campaigns of 1780 and 1781, etc., etc. (a long 
eulogy follows here of the soldiers and their sufferings). 
(Ramsey's History of South Carolina, p. 440.) 

In a letter from Gen. Francis Marion to Col. P. Horry (Horry, 
MS.) dated Bacon Bridge, May 11th, 1782, he says: 


" I sent you a letter by Commodore Lockwood, informing 
that the British intend to go to Georgetown, under French 
colors and dress : you will I dare say, prevent their deception 
from taking effect," etc., etc. (Gibbs' Documentary History of 
S. C, 1776-1782.) 

"The force opposed to the British fleet was the Bricole, 44 
guns, Providence and Boston, each 32, and 6 others." (Ramsey's 
Hy. South Carolina, edition 1809, vol. 1, p. 323.) 

Note. — Commodore Whipple commanded the American naval 
force in March, 1780. 

Georgetown, June 29th, 1782, in a letter of Col. P. Horry to 
Gen. Marion, he says : Lochvood is here with orders from the 
Governor to load with rice for goods received ; and as you want 
goods and they are present, I wish you may find it convenient to 
take them and make payment agreeably to the adventui-e. The 
boat awaits your answer. The captain has risked these goods 
(and without a pass) to serve us, and is willing to send you any 
quantity you may commission him for. 

I am dear General your obedient servant, 


(Gibbs' Doc'y His. South Carolina, p. 244 ) 

In a letter of Capt. Jacob MilUgan to Gen. 3Iarion, George- 
town, October 31st. 1782, he says: 

" Sir. — I have .^ \ moment been favored with your Excel- 
lency's letter of 28th, instant, in consequence of which have 
made a seizure of a schooner from Mr. Lockwood, in Charlestoicn, 
deeply laden with tobacco, rice, etc., which was discharged from 
the sloop I mentioned to your Excellency I had seized before, 
and which I then cleared upon seeing a passport signed by the 
Governor," etc., etc. 

Commodore Lockwood to Gen. Marion. 

Charlestown, October 31, 1782. 

Dear Sir : 

As it is the Governor's desire for the good of our country, I 
have made it my business to send out whatever I can send them, 
Dorchester way, without a pass, and one with the Governor's pass 


to Georgetown ; but this day Daniel Shields appealed to me for a 
recommendation to von, for a pass to go with his schooner to Mr. 
Sainton's at Wappetaw. I know little of the said Shields, but 
am told he is a good coaster, therefore, must be of service to us, 
and doubt not but you will give him a pass to remain until fur- 
ther orders, as the Governor's passes run. Here is, also, a fine 
Virginia schooner, the Nancy, Capt. John Anderson, which 
wants a pass to Georgetown, and there to remain, which I shall 
be obliged to your Excellency for, by the bearer, as I have no 
opportunity at present to send to the Governor. The troops are 
to embark the loth November, as Leslie says. 

I am with great respect Sir, your most humble servant,

Sketch of Major Ebenezer Lockwood of the Revolu- 
tionary Army. 

By his Sox Judge Ezra Lockwood. Written Previous to the Year 

Ebenezer Lockwocd, late of Poundridge, in Westchester 
County, deceased, was born in Stamford, Conn., on the 31st of 
March, 1737, and was the fourth son of Joseph Lockwood who 
emigrated to Poundridge in the spring of the year 1743, and 
settled in the central part of the town (now village), on a right 
of land belonging to one of the original proprietors of the Stam- 
ford Patent, so called, and which fell within the jurisdiction of 
New York. 

He continued on the farm with his father engaged in agricul- 
tural pursuits during his minority, but soon after engaged in 
various other pursuits of extensive usefulness. 

Soon after the demise of his father, which occurred June 15th, 
1757, the paternal patrimony, consisting of some four or five 
hundred acres, was -divided between his older brother and him- 
self, being the only surviving sons, which still remains in the 
possession of the descendants after the lapse of a century. 

It was the circumstance of a pound being erected on that 




Qjed 8'(; years- ^'''^ 



In the old bury'ng ground at Poundridga N Y 


handsome ridge of land now owned by one of his sons, that 
gave to the town the name of Poundridge. 

At the age of 25 he was engaged iu merchandise, and was 
appointed one of his Majesty's Justices of the Peace and one of 
the Qnorum, which offices he held until the commencement of 
the Revolutionary "War. At the breaking out of hostilities, to 
wit, on the 19th of October, 1775, he was commissioned a 
Major in the Eegiment of Westchester County Militia, com- 
manded by Col. Thomas Thomas, and was in active service 
during most of the campaign of '76, when the enemy took pos- 
session of the lower part of Westchester County. 

In the month of May, 1776, he attended the Provincial Con- 
gress then sitting in New York, having been elected to that office 
on the third Tuesday in April previous for one year, and was in 
continued service from that period until, the close of the war, 
either as Major, Member of the Provincial Congress, Committee 
of Safety, and other posts of active duty in favor of American 
Independence, until its final acknowledgment by Great Britain 
in 1783. After the Declaration of Independence he was elected 
a member of the Provincial Convention for forming a constitu- 
tion of Government for the State, and as such aided in the for- 
mation and adoption of the first Constitution and was returned 
as a member of the Legislature for several years after the close 
of the war. Other stations of public employment also engaged 
much of his time and called him from the domestic circle at 
considerable sacrifice of interest and comfort. His unwearied 
zeal and activity in the American cause also was accompanied 
with much pecuniary loss and sacrifice of property. In the year 
1779 when the whole county of Westchester was the theatre of 
blood, rapine and plunder, and life and property endangered 
from foes without and traitors within, his hospitable dwelling 
was opened as a military cantonment and rendezvous of Col. 
Sheldon's regiment of Light Dragoons. The regiment was en- 
gaged in frequent skirmishes with the enemy, and served as a 
protection to the Northern frontier from the incursions of the 
Tories and British from below the lines in the neighborhood of 
North Castle. 

It was for the capture of this regiment that Sir Henry Clinton 


resolved on sending Col. B. Tarleton with a detachment of the 
Royal Dragoons of the 17th Regiment and a detachment of 
about 300 men on the night of July 2d, 1779. 

The precaution of the Committee of Safety had placed a spy 
by the name of Luther Kinnicut in the enemy's camp below the 
lines, who on the day previous gave notice to Col. Sheldon of the 
intended attack in a short time, but did not know the precise 
day. The night proved stormy, and the torrents of rain which 
fell would have retarded the progress of a commander of less 
intrepidity than Tarleton, Sheldon apprehended no danger, on 
account of the storm. Col. Moylan's regiment was daily ex- 
pected tojoin Sheldon, and had the junction been effected before 
Tarleton's arrival, from the well known bravery and courage of 
Moylan and his troops, the fate of Tarleton would not have been 
less disastrous than he received from the old Wagoner at the 

Sentinels were placed about a mile from the Major's on the 
north and south roads leading to Bedford. The sentinels on the 
north road, at early dawn, descried a large body of Dragoons 
under rapid movement, who passed the junction of the road 
leading from Bedford to Poundridge and continued on toward 
Ridgefield. This mistake of the enemy in pursuing the Ridge- 
field road for half a mile or more, gave time for the vidette to 
return and give the notice. Sheldon, supposing that it might 
have been Col. Moylan's regiment who were expected, dispatched 
Major Benjamin Tallmadge with a small detachment to i-econ- 
noitre and bring back intelligence of the true state of things. 
About half way to the junction of the road, as Tallmadge 
ascended a hill where the road turned to the right, from the 
uneveness of the ground, an object could not be seen except at a 
very short distance ahead, and at this place Tallmadge met Tar- 
leton under full charge, wheeled and returned at full si)eed with 
Tarleton at his heels; while Sheldon with his command were 
preparing to mount their horses which were tied to the fence on 
the east side of the road by the meeting-house. A general rout 
ensued, while Sheldon's regiment moved off down the road lead- 
ing to Stamford for about three-fourths of a mile, then separated 
at the junction of the road leading to Canaan, with Tarleton's 


Dragoons harassing his rear, killing, wounding and taking 
prisoners some 18 or 20. The enemy lost one killed, four 
prisoners, and wounded uncertain, one horse killed and four 

Among the prisoners captured by Tarleton was Alsop Hunt, a 
son-in-law of Major Loekwood, who, after being rifled of a gold 
watch, money, and other things of value about his person, was 
carried to K'ew York and lodged in the Provost prison. 

The pursuit lasted about four or five hours, when Tarleton, 
being unable to overtake Sheldon, returned, burnt the Major's 
house with most of its contents, permitting one of his soldiers 
cruelly to cut and maltreat his wife, drove off his valuable stock of 
sixteen cows, burnt the meetiug-houie, and were about committing 
further outrages when the militia, under command of Major 
Leavenworth, began to approach and Tarleton fled with all the 
precipitation he came. 

/Major Loekwood, thus being destitute of a house or home, and 
apprehending further visits from the. enemy, found an asylum for 
his family in the house of a friend in Eidgefield, while he con- 
tinued in active service to his country in various stations of civil 
and military duty to the close of the war. Nothing disheartened 
by this reverse of fortune, he soon returned to his farm, converted 
a barn into a dwelling, was honored with the appointment of first 
Judge of the County Court, frequently elected to the Legislature 
from Westchester County, was intrusted with loaning the 
moneys of the State in the County, and other responsible offices. 

\Ylien peace was established with Great Britain, the County, 

through the villany of Col. ■ , was destitute of a Court 

house and jail. The location of a public building is always 
calculated to excite the interested feelings of different sections of 
the territory to be accommodated, and it was so with Westchester 
County. Judge Loekwood was one of the committee to settle this 
vexed cpiestioii of locality, and through his influence, principally, 
the present arrangement of court houses was effected, which has 
proved to give general satisfaction for more than half a century. 

About the year 1795 he retired from all public employment, 
and spent the remainder of his days in the circle of his family 
and friends until his death, 29th July, 1821, beloved and es- 
teemed by all who knew him.

9ho., A.M., October 4th, 1776. 

The Convention met. Major Lockwood representing West 
Chester Co. The Commissary General applied to Congress for 
advice about 1200 Bbls. pork supplied to the Army. The 
matter was referred to a special committee, with Major Lock- 
wood as Chairman, whose very lengthy report is given on page 
220, in which occurs this sentence, "Your Committee, however, 
conceive it beneath the dignity of this State to demand any alter- 
ation respecting the price of said Pork, and have therefore agreed 
to the following Resolution :" "Resolved, That in the opinion 
of this Committee, the Auditor General repair to the Commissary 
General," etc., etc., etc., and then later on, " But as this Conven- 
tion, zealous for the honor of the State and the success of the 
common cause, would carefully avoid every measure which 
might tend to impede the general service, embarrass the Commis- 
sary General in his department, or raise a suspicion that this 
Convention was capable of seeking an unreasonable advantage," 
your Committee, etc., etc., etc., recommend that they " be author- 
ized to settle with the Commissary General on the terms he has 
himself proposed." At the same meeting (p. 221) a representa- 
tion was made to the Convention, " that this State is indebted 
to Nicholas Bayard, Esquire, in the out ward of the City of New 
York, for the use of his House, for the security of the publick 
Records of this State," etc., etc., etc., " now being deprived of his 
whole estate by the enemy, payment thereof ought to be made," 
it was " ordered that Mr. Lockwood, Mr. Dunscomb, and Mr. 
Duane be a Committee to state and report the sum reasonably 
due from this State to Nicholas Bayard, Esquire, on the account 
above mentioned." 

On October 17th, 1776 (p. 255), the Convention, Major Lock- 
wood being present, passed a long resolution with reference to 
the action of the Continental Congress, for the sale and consump- 
tion of Bohea Tea, reciting that "many tea holders did, among 
other things, allege that they were fast friends to the American 
cause, and had been induced to import a more than usual quantity 


of that article, with a view the better to oppose and defeat the 
designs of the Ministry and India Company, in selling Tea in 
the Colonies, subject to duty," etc., etc., etc., " and the Continental 
Congress did grant the prayer of the petitioners," etc., etc., and 
" whereas, certain Tea holders now refused to dispose of their 
stock of Tea on hand, designing to postpone the sale thereof 
until such time as an artificial scarcity shall induce the women 
of this State to tempt them to vend it, by offering exhorbitant 
prices," and others " have sold Tea at double the price allowed 
by the Congress," and " said unjustifiable and mercenary prac- 
tices have brought upon them the resentment of the people, and 
many riotous proceedings," etc., etc., this Convention for the 
reason aforesaid, etc., etc., etc., order the " Committees, etc., to 
take into custody, from every Tea Merchant, Shopkeeper, or 
other person," etc., "all the Bohea Tea found in their possession, 
over and above the quantity of twenty-five pounds respectively, 
and appoint some respectable person or persons to retail the same 
in small quantities, to any person that may apply to purchase 
the same, at the rate of six shillings per pound," etc., which was 
agreed to, and at the same meeting (p. 257) "a letter was read 
from Joshua Ambler, Cliairman of the Committee, of Pound 
Eidge, in West Chester Co., dated the 15th inst., informing that 
there is danger of the prisoners of war going off to the enemy, as 
one of them is already gone to Long Island." 

" Thereupon, Resolved, 'That Major Lockw'ood repair imme- 
diately to Pound Ridge and Bedford, in West Chester Co., to 
inquire into the state of the prisoners of war confined there, and 
if he should find it necessary, that he cause the privates to be 
conveyed under a proper guard to Woodbury, in the State of 
Connecticut,' and that the officers who are prisoners on parole to 
Danbury in the same State." " Major Lockwood to be furnished 
with the blank paroles, to be by him filled up for such of the 
said prisoners as are confined there on parole, the old paroles to 
be cancelled, and that Major Lockwood, at his discretion, settle 
with and advance to the prisoners the rations and other provi- 
sions allowed by the Resolve of Congress, as may appear to have 
been justly due to them."

prisoners of war as yet remained there. He then reports in de- 
tail the names of, and disposition of, certain prisoners and further

paroles of honour, etc., etc., etc., and ordered the monies refunded, 

P. 275. On Tuesday, October 29th, 1776, the Committee of 
Safety ordered, " That Major Lockwood be requested to proceed 
immediately to West Chester Co., and make inquiry where the 
Records of the Town Clerk's Office of the City and County of 
New York, as also the publick Records of the Loan Offices, and 
Supervisors of the County of West Chester are deposited, and 
that he use his best endeavors to cause them to be safely con- 
veyed to such place of safety as he shall judge prudent; and 


that this Committee will make provision for paying the expenses 
attending the same." 

P. 322. On November 26th, 1776, the Committee ordered 
" that Mr. L'Hommediene and Major Lockwood be a Committee

destitute), and if Colonel Welch shall refuse to take charge of 
them, then to give proper orders for their relief." 

And also on page 906, Force's Annals, same volume, the fol- 
lowing letter from Major Lockwood to Pierre V. Cortlandt, 
Vice-President of the Convention : 

" Pound Ridge, November 29th, 1776. 

" Sir: These are to inform you that I have been at Stamford 
this day, and was informed by several gentlemen that might be 
depended on, that there is but a few of the enemy's ships up the 
Sound, and them but small ones, thought to have no troops on 
board of them ; and they think the enemy will not land there 
this year, except it be to plunder off some of their stock that may 
be down on their necks of land. 

"There was landed from a brig and tender this day a number 
of men at Greenwich, a place about two miles below the post 
road, near Stamford, where (as was supposed) they thought to 
liave taken off a number of sheep, but they were disappointed, 
for some boys drove them off, while the inhabitants fired on the 
enemy. The enemy soon returned to their ships. The enemy 
got off only four poor calves under the cover of their cannon. 
A poor bargain. The ships soon went up the Sound, to the 
East, out of sight. The men, both old and young, came down 
in large numbers when they heard the cannon, and from several 
miles back, and seemed to be in high spirits. So, on the whole, 
I think things appear more favorable than I expected in this 

" Mr. Mills is to set out to come to you on Monday next. I 
hope to be with you about the middle of next week. 
From your humble servant, 


Pierre V. Cortlandt, Vice President of the Convention, of the 
State of New York, at the Fishkills."

nearly all their household furniture, their barns also destroyed 
by fire, with the greater part of the wheat harvest and English

A Revolutionary Incident. 

"An amusing story is among the traditions concerning one 
Nathan Lockwood, of Poundridge, New York. 

" Nathan was captured by the British, and while in prison was 
taunted by one of his fellow townsmen who was a Tory. In 
due course of time Nathan was released and went home. Instead 
of stopping to see his family, however, at Poundridge, although 
it was in the night time, he went several miles further to the 
house of his Tory friend. He called him up, and after giving 
him a sound threshing went home to see his family."

manded by Col. James Holmes, in the service of the United 
States. He was present and engaged in the taking of St. Johns 
in Canada, in the fall of 1775. He was honorably discharged at 
Ticonderoga. He afterwards enlisted under Capt. Samuel 
Delavan, in 1778, for 3 months, in regiment under Col. Thomas 



Thomas, in United States service. He was taken a prisoner by 
the British commanded by ]Major Campbell (who was killed in 
the engagement at Eastchester, in "Westchester Co.), and taken to 
New York and put into a sugar house, amongst other American 
prisoners, and kept there 13 months. (United States Pension

Of Mrs. Elizabeth ("Webb) Lockwood, who died at Ashtabula,

(Lockwood) Strong, her granddaughter, writes from Millington, 
Tuscola Co., Michigan, February 16th, 1888. 

" I have her, that she said was her grand- 
mother's. All who have owned it, except my father, were named 
Elizabeth. I think Colonel Webb was her brother, instead of 
her cousin. I remember she told me that she saw her brothers 
pursued by the British troops into a field of grain, whither they- 
went to hide from the sight of their pursuers. Whenever the 
Red Coats found a man they cut him down with their swords. 
Her brothers escaped, as they were not discovered by the enemy. 
I was a little child when she told me this story, but it made a 
deep impression on my mind." 

General Samuel B. Webb 
was cousin to Elizabeth Webb, wife of Andrew Lockwood, whose 
great-uncle, Joseph Lockwood, married Margery Webb.

Hill, June 17th, 1775 ; was aid-de-eamp to General Israel Put-

wounded at White Plains, New York ; commended for gallant

On the 2d January, 1838, personally appeared in the Marine 
Court of the City of New York, George Lockwood, now of 
said city and late a .resident of Greenwich, Fairfield County, 


Connecticut, aged 86 years, and stated that he was born in Green- 
wich. In 1775 enlisted in an artillery company. He remembers 
the following persons in said company, to wit : Millington Lock- 
wood, Heth Peck, Timothy Knapp, and Elnathau Lockwood. 

He remembers that Millington Lockwood had belonged to the 
same company with him in the early part of the war, but that he 
afterwards deserted and went to the enemy, and that by acting 
as leader to parties of the enemy who made incursions at various 
times, he occasioned very great mischief in and about Green- 
wich. That said Millington owned a house on Mianus Xeck, 
where his family resided after he went to the enemy, and he used 
occasionally to visit his family by means of boats from Long 
Island. That on one occasion information was given that said 
Millington was at his house, and declarant with others of his 
company went over to the Neck to take him, but some of said 
Millington's party got off in two boats before declarant's party 
reached the shore. That the boat in which said Millington was, 
not having escaped beyond gun-shot, was fired on by declarant's 
party, and said Millington received a severe wound in the head, 
from which he never wholly recovered, and fell as if dead. 
That his boat's crew then surrendered and were taken prisoners, 
and declarant helped to guard them all night after they were taken 
at the house which had belonged to said Millington and where his 
family resided, but which declarant purchased, the same having 
been confiscated. 

That at the time when General Putnam escaped down the great 
hill at Horse Neck from a party of the enemy, declarant was under 
arras about two miles eastward of the Hill, and deponent saw him 
pass on towards Stamford, where he obtained recruits and returned 
in about two hours with some very rough recruits, some of whom 
were old men, and some boys, and some very indifferently mounted. 
That on the return of General Putnam declarant and his party 
ascended the Hill, and made a charge on the enemy, who con- 
tinued skirmishing until they were driven to Bryam Bridge; it 
then rained hard and was very muddy, and orders were given to 
return to Horse Neck — that a number of prisoners were taken, 
and some deserted on that day from the enemy, and some of the 
enemy were found very drunk. 


That declarant was one of a body that attacked a party of De 
Lancey's Corps, which went as far as Captain Isaac Lockwood's 
in Stamford, and took a great many cattle and some prisoners — 
that his party drove the enemy down as far as Byram Bridge and 
got some of the cattle back — he thinks he was then under Captain 
Timothy Lockwood. 

317. Isaac Lockwood (Robert/ Jonathan,' Still John,'

Caleb Lockwood. He located in Marlborough, Ulster County,

He spent his early life with his father on the farm. Before 
the Revolutionary War, he was commissioned " in good old 
Colony times," and had command of a company. After the war 
had commenced, he was promoted to Colonel, and for three years 
commanded the American lines at Horseneck, and for several 
miles either way from it, saw some active service. He was with 
our troops when New York was given up, and his regiment was 
the last to leave the city. He was subsequently promoted to be 
Brigadier-General. He was short of stature, and very fleshy. 
After the close of the war, he was employed a greater part of the 
time in public matters. He built several vessels, some of which 
were purchased by the Government for war-ships. He was for 
nineteen consecutive years, and to the close of his life, a member 
of the Connecticut Legislature, and was at the time of his death

and declare the future form of Government for this State," and 
each member took an oath to "support and maintain the inde- 
pendence of this State, as declared by the honorable the Conti- 
nental Congress," and also as follows: "I do profess faith in 
God the Father and in Jesus Christ his only Son, and in the 
Holy Ghost, one God blessed forevermore; and I do acknowl- 
eilge the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be 
given by Divine inspiration." 

Richard Lockwood was also present at the Council held October 
29th, 1777 (p. 247), when but few members were present because 
of the alarming condition of affairs, when it was decided " to raise 
six hundred militia to defend the State."

A Story of the Revolutionary War. 

We find the following incident of the Pouudridge fight, of 
1779, related in a manuscript memorandum book, kept by Ezra 
Lockwood, of Poundridge. 

" Jared Hoyt, a brave soldier, in the rear of Sheldon's com- 
mand, was hard pressed by Tarletou's advance and within strik- 
ing distance of his assailant, received a blow from the heavy 
cuthT^s of his pursuer on the head. The blow only cleft the skin 
and hair from the side of his head. Hoyt instantly returned the 
blow back-handed, which struck his assailant directly in the 
mouth, nearly separating the top of the head from his body." 

"Jarcd Hovt was born May 20th, 1762." (Hoyt Genealogy, 
p. 439.)

"The enemy entered the town of Danbury, Connecticut, on 
Saturday the 26th of April, 1777, at about three o'clock in the 
afternoon; about 2000 men from New York under Gov* 
Tryon. Nineteen dwelling-houses, a meeting-house, twenty- 
two stores and barns with all their contents were consumed. 
From the best information which can be obtained, there were 
3000 barrels of pork, more than 1000 barrels of flour, several 
hundred barrels of beef, 1600 tents, 2000 bushels of grain, and 
other articles of value were burned amounting to £15,862, 9s. 7fZ. 
lawful money. 

" Col. Cook appears to have been in the command at Danbury 
at the time it was burnt. Receiving some notice of the landing 
or approach of the enemy, he immediately dispatched a messen- 
ger by the name of Lambert Lockwood v/\th a letter to Gen. Silli- 
man, informing him that there was no ammunition in the place, 
and requesting orders. The messenger, before he was aware of 
it, came up with the British troops in the vicinity of Reading 
Church, about eight miles below Danbury. He attempted to 
flee, but was fired upon, wounded, and taken prisoner. 

" Tryon, it appears, had, a few years previous, broke down in his 


carriage while passing through Xorwalk. Mr. Lockwood, being 
then a clerk in a store in that place, rendered Tryon some assist- 
ance, and being recognized bv him, on account of his services on 
that occasion, Tryon, on his leaving Danbury, intended to give 
him a furlough ; while he was writing it, one of Tryon's officers 
came in, exclaiming, 'The d — d rebels are upon us, we must be 
off!' Tryon threw down his pen, and left his prisoner to take 
care of himself." (Barber's His'l Collections of Connecticut, 
pp. 365, 366.) 

British attack on Danbury, Connecticut, April 26th, 1777 : 

"On hearing of the approach of the enemy Col. Cook sent to 
Gen. Silliman for arms and ammunition. The messenger was 
Lambert Lockicood, who, coming suddenly upon the British 
troops near Reading Church, was made a prisoner. Governor 
Tryon at once recognized him as a young man who had given 
him aid when his carriage broke down while passing through 
Norwalk, and on that account took Lockwood under his protec- 
tion, but in his hasty retreat from Danbury left him to take care 
of himself. Tryon was writing a protection for him when he 
heard that the Americans were coming, when the Governor 
dropped his pen and seized his sword, and the protection 
remained unwritten." (Lossing's Field Book of the Revolution, 
vol. 1, p. 403.) 

Captain Lambert Lockwood was Assistant Deputy Quarter- 
master General in the Revolutionary War. He was of Bridge- 
port, Conn. His widow applied for and received a pension at

oath that she was aged 72 years.

Dear Sir. — Col.* Wadsworth was over in this place most of 
yesterday, and has ordered twenty men out of each company in 
his regiment — some of which have already set off, and others go 
this morning. He brings accounts, which come to him authen- 
ticated, from Thursday in the afternoon. The King's troops 
being reinforced a second time, and joined, as I suppose, from 
what I can learn, by the party who were intercepted by Colonel 
Gardner, were then encamped on Winter Hill, and were sur- 
rounded by twenty thousand of our men, who were entrenching. 
Colonel Gardner's ambush proved fatal to Lord Percy and 
another general oflBcer, who were killed on the spot at the first 
fire. To counterbalance this good news, the story is that our 
first man in command (who he was I know not) is also killed. 
It seems, they have lost many men on both sides. Colonel 
Wadsworth had the accounts in a letter from Hartford. 

The country beyond here are all gone off and we expect it will 
be impossible to procure horses for our waggons; as they have 
or will, in every place employ themselves all their horses. In 
this place, they send a horse for every sixth man, and are pressing 
them for that purpose. I know of no way, but you must imme- 
diately send a couple of stout able horses, who may overtake us 
at Hartford possibly; where, we must return M. Noy's and 
Meloy's, if he holds out so far. Remember, the horses must be 
had at any rate. 

I am in the greatest haste, your entire friend and humble

N. B. — Col. Gardner took nine prisoners, and twelve clubbed 
their firelocks, and came over to our party. Colonel Gardner's 
party, consisted of seven hundred, and the regulars eighteen 
hundred, instead of twelve hundred, as we heard before. They 
have sent a vessel up Mystick Eiver as far as Temple's Farm, 
which is about half a mile from Winter Hill. These accounts 
being true all the King's forces, except four or five hundred, 
must be encamped on Winter Hill. At the instance of the gen- 
tlemen of Fairfield, just departed from hence, this is copied ver- 
batim from the original, to be forwarded to that town.

A true copy, received in New York, 2 o'clock, P.M., Tuesday, 
April 25th, 1775.* 

* No signature appears here for New York, and it is accounted for in this 
manner. Mr. Lockwood's letter, and all the signatures after it down to Balti- 
more, are written in one handwriting on a sheet of paper; hence it is probable, 
the papers with the original subscribers, were withholden at Baltimore, and 
were copied thereon that sheet of paper; in doing which, they omitted insert- 
ing the subscribers at New York. From Baltimore, inclusive, the subscriber's 
names to the papers are in their own handwriting.

In a letter of General David Wooster to General Schuyler,

" The four fusils taken by Major Lockwoocl, are put up in a 
box according to capitulation and are now at St. John's ready to 
he sent over the Lakes." (lb., p. 852.) 

In another letter from Gen. Wooster to Gen, Schuyler, from 
Montreal, January 27th, 1776 (lb., p. 869), he writes: 

"Major Lockwood and Capt. Rensselaer desire me to present 
their respects to you," 

The following spicy correspondence appears in a letter from 
Gen, Wooster to Gen. Schuyler, dated Montreal, January 19th, 

"Major Campbell told Capt. Benedict at Chambly, that I was 
a damned old scoundrel, and had broke faith with him for that 
he was promised both by Gen. Montgomery and me, that he 
might remain in this town through the winter. Truth is, that 
Gen. ]\Iontgoraery just before he left this town made out an 
order for Major Campbell and some other prisoners to leave the 
town immediately, which order he gave to Major Lockwood to 
see executed," etc. (lb., p. 1004.) 

" As I find the return of stores which has been made from St. 
John's is an imperfect one, I shall to-morrow send Major Lock-

pointed him a Brigade Major " in the northern army." He was 
at the capture of St. John, at Montreal and at Quebec in April 
and May, 1776. 











This seems to have been the extent of his field service. On 
September 24th, 1777, he was appointed recruiting officer of the 
First Connecticut Militia Brigade. After the war Major Lock- 
wood went to Philadelphia and engaged in business. 

He is said to have died in "Wilmington, N. C, August 24th, 
1795. ("Yale in the Eevolution," 18<S8, H. P. Johnson, p. 249.)

"Among the members of the Governor's Guards" who went 
to Lexington on hearing of the skirmish was Mr. Earl, a por- 
trait painter, and Amos Doolittle an engraver. Mr. Earl made 
four drawings of Lexington and Concord, which were afterwards 
engraved by Mr. Doolittle. The plates were 12 x 18 inches in 
size and executed with great dispatch, for in the Connecticut 
Journal of December 13th, 1775, is the following advertisement: 
" This day published 

"And to be sold at the store of Mr. James Lockwood, near 
the College in Xew Haven, four different views of the battles of 
Lexington, Concord, &c., on the 19th of A])ril, 1775. 
Plate I. The battle of Lexington. 
Plate II. A view of the town of Concord, with the ministerial 

troops destroying the stores. 
Plate III. The battle at the North Bridge, in Concord. 
Plate IV. The south part of Lexington, when the first detach- 
ment was joined by Lord Percy. 

" The above four plates are neatly engraved on copper, from 
original paintings taken on the spot. 

"Price: six shillings per set for plain ones, or eight shillings 

"A copy of this print is on p. 524 of Lossing's Field Book, 
etc., vol. 2." (Field Book of the Eevolution, Lossing, vol, 1, 
p. 421.) 

"From 1768 until about the year 1775, James Lockwood 
dealt largely in books, at New Haven, Conn." (Amu. Anti- 
quarian Soc, vol. 6, p. 234.) 

"James Lockwood, of the Class of 1 766, served in the Revolu- 
tionary Army." (Hy. Yale College, p. 206.) 


" T\ heu the news of tlie Lexington affair reached New York 
(April 2od, 1775) through James Lockwood's letter, measures 
for stopping all vessels in the harbor sailing for Quebec and 
other ports where there were British troops, were taken." (Dun- 
lap's Hy. New York, edition 1840, p. 215.) 

"On June 21st, 1775, a communication was received from the 
Provincial Congress of New York, dated New York, 17th of 
June, 1775, and signed by Peter V. B. Livingston, President, 
and certified as follows : 

"The above is a true copy of a letter just received from the 
Provincial Congress of New York and forwarded by Express." 
(Jour. Prov. Cong., Mass. edition, 1838, p. 373.) 



Note. — This express was forwarded from New York to 
Massachusetts on the day of the Battle of Bunker Hill, and of 
course they knew nothing of it in New York. 

Note. — " Capt. McNeil took command of the Frigate Boston, 
24 guns, in 1777." (Life of Commodore Samuel Tucker, p. 51.) 

This was Cap'n Hector McNeil, who was officially addressed 
the previous year by Major James Lockwood. 

" From the original, in the collection of Jeremiah Colburn, 
Boston, Mass., Col. James Lockwood." (N. E. H. and G. Reg., 
vol. 30, p. 333.) 

The James Lockwood second express, first appears in " Docu- 
mentary History of the American Revolution," from- originals 
in the possession of the editor and other sources by R. W. Gibbs, 
M.D., published by Appletons, 1855; some others are given in 
Drayton's Memoirs and will be deposited in Archives of South 
Carolina by A. R. Drayton, President Charleston College. 

Note. — No signature appears for New York and it is accounted 
for in this manner. Mr. Lockwood's letter and all the signatures 
after it down to Baltimore, are written in one handwriting on a 
sheet of paper ; hence it is probable, the papers with the original 
subscribers, were withholden at Baltimore, and were copied there 
on that sheet of paper; in doing which, they omitted inserting 


the subscribers at Kew York. From Baltimore inclusive, the 
subscribers' names to the paper are in their own handwriting.

Abstract of a letter of Robert Crafton, to Franklin, from 
Montreal, January 8th, 1776. 

" Last week our troops under General Montgomery and Col. 
Arnold, attempted to storm Quebec, etc. The city was alarmed, 
etc., and General Montgomery killed, and his aid de camp, and 
Captain Cheeseraan wounded ; Captain Lamb wounded and 
a prisoner, with most of the party, ^younded Colonel Arnold 
in the leg, and killed and wounded 150 of his riflemen, and 
taken about 500 of his men prisoners, etc. Major Lockwood 
is likewise a prisoner." (Mass. His. Soc. Coll., vol. 10.) 

" The General Assembly had directed that a recruiting officer 
to enlist men for the Continental Army and to take up and se- 
cure deserters should be appointed in each of the Brigades of 
Militia in the State; and the Governor and Council appointed 
Major James Lockwood, for the First Brigade, September 24th, 
1777." (Rev. R. B. Hinman, His. Coll. of the part sustained 
by Connecticut during the Revolutionary War, p. 489.)

Hoyt Gen'y., p. 401.) 

State of Connecticut \ 
County of Fairfield, j 

Probate District of Stamford. 

On the 30th day of August, 1832, personally appeared, in open 
Court before the Court of Probate for said District, now sitting, 
Enos Lockwood a resident of Greenwich, in the County of Fair- 
field, and State of Connecticut, aged sixty-nine years, who being 
first sworn according to law, doth, on his oath, make the follow- 
ing declaration, in order to obtain the benefit of the act of Con- 
gress, passed June 7th, 1832 : That he entered the service of the 
United States under the following named officers, and served as 
herein stated, viz.: In the year 1780 and in the month of March 
as he thinks he enlisted in a company of Connecticut State troops 
called Town Guards or Coast Guards in said Greenwich, com- 
manded by Capt. Timothy Lockwood, and Lieutenant Oliver 
Jervis, both of whom are now dead, enlisted for nine months and 
served the whole nine months in said Greenwich in doing guard 
duty. His enlistment was either the last of March or first of 
April. During the time we had a clever skirmish with a party 
of the enemy one night. They had landed on the point below 
us, and had taken three of the guard prisoners, which we retook. 
Drake Lockwood of said Greenwich was in this service, though 
he was not in this skirmish. After this and until the conclusion 
of hostilities declarant was, with the exception of nine months, 
constantly in service in said guards under the Land Officers men- 
tioned above and under enlistment, but he cannot now recollect 
the times of his enlistments, nor any particular circumstances 
connected with them. In said term of nine months Capt. Harry 
Waring, now deceased, had command of said Guards in Green- 
wich, and declarant during this period did not belong to them — 
but all the rest of the time from the expiration of his said first 
enlistment as aforesaid while hostilities continued he belonged 
to the guards as aforesaid and constantly did duty therein. 
Declarant cannot say from his recollection with certainty how 
much time State services amounted to ; but he thinks to a little 


more than two years including his first enlistment, for he received 
according to his recollection forty shillings Connecticut currency 
(-S6.67) per month, and that his whole pay for services was fifty- 
one or fifty-two pounds Connecticut currency — from which his 
services must have been twenty-five or six months. He has had 
in his possession papers showing this amount of pay, and kept 
them for many years, but they have been lost for some years. 
The time when Capt. Waring had charge of the guards, com- 
menced as declarant thinks about April, 1 782. He feels confident 
that after his first enlistment, he enlisted twice, and could a few 
years ago have told the particulars ; but they are gone from his 
memory now, and he cannot state the particulars now, but he 
thinks one enlistment was a longer time than the other — one 
duty was in guarding the sea-coast and repelling petty invasions 
and incursions which were very frequent — we lived in a region 
greatly exposed and harassed by the enemy. 

Declarant was born in said Greenwich, March 1st, 1763, his 
age is recorded in a book which declarant received from his 
father, and which has for several generations been used as a 
family record — re<ided in said Greenwich at all times when he 
entered the service, and has ever resided there up to this time; 
enlisted voluntarily — cannot state the names of either officers or 
regiments, or the circumstances more particularly than he has 
done, to any useful purpose. General John Mead (formerly Col. 
Mead) had command on the lines — one company of guards was 
not embodied with any other to declarant's knowledge — declarant 
was out in his company against the enemy when thev came to 
Horse Neck and a-sisted in driving them back. 

Declarant has on other occasions been in skirmishes with the 
enemy — never received a written discharge. Said Oliver .Tervis 
used to be our paymaster. There has not been for many years 
past a settled clergyman in that part of said Greenwich where 
declarant resides — only occasional preaching — and he can find 
no clergyman who knows anything of his services or that he is 
reported to have been a soldier of the Revolution — he therefore 
refers to the persons whose depositions accompany this applica- 
tion, to prove his character for truth and their belief or knowledge 
of his services as a soldier of the Revolution. Upon further 


reflection thinks that a small portion of what pay he received as 
aforesaid (possibly three or four pounds) was a commutation for 
rations — but his services according to his recollection and what 
has ever been his impression, covered altogether about two years. 

The said guards were not of the regular militia of the State, 
but distinct separate corps. 

The said Enos Lockwood hereby relinquishes every claim 
whatever to a pension or annuity, except the present, and declares 
that his name is not on a pension roll or the agency of any State. 

Sworn to, and subscribed, the day and year aforesaid. 



And the said Court do hereby declare their opinion, after the 
investigation of the matter, and after putting the interrogatories 
prescribed by the War Department, that the above named appli- 
cant was a Revolutionary Soldier, and served as he states. And 
the Court farther certifies, that it appears to them that Messenger 
Lockwood and Drake Lockwood who have signed the preceding 
certificates or depositions are residents in the town of Greenwich 
in Connecticut and are credible persons and that their statement 
is entitled to credit. 



I, Samuel Lockwood, Clerk of the Court of Probate for the 
district of Stamford, in Connecticut, do hereby certify, that the 
foregoing contains the original proceedings of the said Court in 
the matter of the application of Enos Lockwood for a Pension. 

In Testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal 
of office, this 30th August, 1832.

State of Coxxecticut, \ 
County of Fairfield, y'^' 

Probate District of Stamford. 

On this .30th Day of August, A.D. 1832, personally appeared 
before the Court of Probate in and for said District, Messenger 
Lockwood of Greenwich, aged sixty-seven years, who being first 
duly sworn according to Law doth on his oath in open Court 
depose and say that he well knows Enos Lockwood who has 
subscribed and sworn to the foregoing declaratious — his age is 
sixty-nine years — his character for truth is good — in the Revolu- 
tionary War in the year 1780 deponent well knows that said 
Enos was an enlisted soldier of said county in a company of 
Town guards or Coast guards in said Greenwich, commanded by 
Captain Timothy Lockwood and Oliver Jervis Lieutenant, both 
of whom are dead. He enlisted in the early part of the season, 
but cannot tell the precise time — he served the season through as 
much as nine months as deponent thinks. Deponent did not at 
this time belong to said guards but he lived then on the spot and 
knows the facts above stated. 

Deponent also well recollects that said Enos was an enlisted 
soldier and did duty in said guards from this time till the guards 
were disbanded on the cessation of hostilities, except that deponent 
believes he was not in the guards for a time while Capt. Waring 
had command, for he lias no recollection of his being in the guard 
then. Deponent entered said guards in the spring of 1781, and 
continued in service in them till the company was disbanded and 
drew wages and provisions. 

And on the same day before said Court personally appeared 
Drake Lockwood of Greenwich in said district, who being first 
duly sworn doth on his oath in open Court depose and say that 
lie well knows Enos Lockwood of said Greenwich, who has sub- 
scribed and sworn to the foregoing declaration, believes his age to 
be sixty-nine years — his character for truth is good. In the Rev- 
olutionary War in the year 1780, Deponent and said Enos were 


both enlisted soldiers iu a company of Town Guards (Con- 
necticut State Troops) iu said Greenwich, commanded by Capt. 
Timothy Lockwood now deceased and Lieut. Oliver Jervis now 
deceased ; one enlistment was for nine months, and began not far 
from the first of April ; we both served the whole term of nine 
months, one in said Greenwich iu doing guard duty and occasion- 
ally had small skirmishes with the enemy. 

General John Mead of said Greenwich (long since dead) had 
command along the lines; after this and till Capt. Harry Waring 
now deceased took command of the guards in Greenwich, said 
Enos and this deponent continutd under fresh enlistments iu said 
guards under the same officers. Waring took the command as 
deponent thinks in the spring of 1782. After the first enlist- 
ment stated above there was as deponent thinks, two enlistments 
and for different terms, but deponent cannot state the particular 
times and lengths of these enlistments. He well recollects the 
first of these; afterwards he and said Enos were constantly in the 
service in land guards, till the time when Waring took command 
as aforesaid, making two years in the whole. Deponent in the 
year 1782, served nine months under Waring, but said Enos did 
not serve then. During all the time aforesaid Enos as deponent 
well knows was constantly in service as aforesaid — during the 
whole war petty invasions and incursions were very frequent in 

Sworn and subscribed by the said Messenger Lockwood and 
Drake Lockwood respectively, the day and year abovesaid.

]\Iessenger LockwoocF" entered the Town or Coast Guards at 
Greenwi(!li, about January, 1781 (Capt. Timotliy Lockwood 
commander), and again for nine months ending April 1st, 1782, 
and was employed guarding homes and towns from the British 
and Tories. 

Testified September 9th, 1833, in addition to his oath of 
August 30th, 1832, that he has recently conversed with his 
brother Enos Lockwood and others who were with him in the 
service and from their recollection and his own, is well satisfied 
and therefore testifies that his first enlistment in 1781 was for 
only a part of a six-months terra of duty, which commenced about 
the 11th January of that year. He again enlisted in the guards 
for nine months ending April 1st, 1782, or within a day or two 
of that date; and he faithfully served out both enlistments. 
These guards were regularly enlisted troops, ordered into the 
service by the public authority of Connecticut. His officers were 
Capt. Timothy Lockwood and Lieut. Oliver Jervis. 

During all this time declarant was in service in the field in 
guarding the homes and towns from the British and Tories who 
molested that quarter from Long Island and the mainland con- 
stantly, as declarant's services were rendered in the immediate 
vicinity of his home, he could occasionally do a little chore at his 
home; but was constantly under arms, on duty. 

The service in Greenwich was extremely harassing. 

He was pensioned §30 per aiinum. 


Sarah Lockwood aged 84 — appeared September 15th, 1854, 
before the Probate Court, widow of Messenger Lockwood, late 
of Greenwich, Connecticut, who served in the Revolutionary 
War. She married Messenger Lockwood in October, 1796. 
That she was married by Col. Charles Webb, of Revolutionary 
memory, who was a Justice of the Peace and resided in Stamford 
near her father's residence. That her marriage took place at the 
house of her father, James Ferris, in said Greenwich. 

I, Peter Lockwood, of the Town of Greenwich, in the County 
of Fairfield, and State of Connecticut, do testify and say that I 
was 84 years old on the 12th day of instant September, 1854. 


I always well knew the late Messenger Lockwood of said Green- 
wich now deed, having daring ray whole life lived in the Society 
of Old Greenwich, in said Town of Greenwich in which he lived 
and died, and I have always known his wife, now his widow — 
her maiden name was Sarah Ferris, daughter of James Ferris, 
who lived and died in said Society in said town ; a great part of 
ray life I have lived within one raile of them all, indeed, within 
half a raile of them, and have never lived at a greater distance 
from them than about one mile. I have known said Messenger 
and his said wife from my youth up, at all times until said Mes- 
senger died and have well known his widow since. She now 
lives in said Society where her husband died. I recollect well 
the marriage of said Messenger and Sarah. They were married 
by Col. Charles ^yebb, who was also a Justice of the Peace. He 
married me also to my wife. They always at all times sustained 
tlie best of characters for virtue and correct deportment. Soon 
after their marriage they came and lived in my fiimily for some 
three or four months while said Messenger was building his 
house. He was older than myself, but I was married before he 
was. My family Bible records ray own marriage, August 15th,

wich, within the township of Greenwich, Conn., near Long 
Island Sound, to drive away his cattle, when his daughter Sarah, 
unterrified by the presence of marauders, ran out of the house and 
drove the cattle back to their quarters. In a few days the enemy, 
having apparently recovered their courage, made another raid 
upon the cattle, when the dauntless girl, Sarah, again came to the 
rescue, whereupon the leader of the band commanded her to leave 
or he would fire upon her. 'Fire then ! ' replied the Connecticut 
girl, when he turned to his men and said, ' Let her have them.' 
Her courage and intrepidity having secured her father's property 
from further molestation." (Contributed by Miss E. Frances 
Lockwood, Norwalk, Conn.)

David Lockwood, A Wonderful Historical Affidavit. 

State of Connecticut, 
County of Fairfield, 

Stamford. Be it known that on this 20th day of February, 
A.D. 1837, before me, Simeon H. Minor, a Notary Public, in 
and for said State and County, personally appeared William 
Waterbury, of said Stamford, who being first duly sworn on his 
oath, says : That he is 70 years of age, and is only child left by 
the late Brigadier-General David Waterbury, deceased, late of 
said Stamford, that his father, the s;iid David Waterbury, at his 
death, left, in the possession of this deponent, many of his 
military documents, which this deponent still retains. He has 
his commission dated the first day of May, 1775, signed by 
Jonathan Trumbull, Governor of the State of Connecticut, and 
countersigned by George Wyllys, Secretary, by which his said 
father was appointed, and made Colonel of the 5th Regiment, of 
the inhabitants enlisted and assembled for the special defense, 
etc. He has also his said father's " orderly book of 1775," on 
wliich are the muster rolls of the ten companies belonging to his 
regiment. The Colonel, Lieutenant-Colonel, and Major, each, 
had his company with subalterns under him. 

His late father's muster-roll embraced himself as Colonel ; 
Sylvanus Brown, as Captain-Lieutenant; Jonathan Whiting, 
Lieutenant; Samuel Halt, Ensign; Charles Webb, Adjutant; 
one clerk, four sergeants, four corporals, and eighty-six privates, 
and amongst the latter are the names of David Lockwood, Jr., late 
of Stamford, deceased, and Squire Dan, who is still living iu said 
Stamford. This deponent well knew said David Lockwood, who 


after the Eevolutionaiy War, lived in a part of Stamford, called 
New Field, where he carried on the trade of a blacksmith.

Be it known that on January 26th, 1837, personally appeared 
Hannah Lockwood, of Stamford, and states under oath, that she is 
in the 78th year of her age. That she was born in Stamford, 
and has ever resided there; that November 7th, 1779, she was 
lawfully married to David Lockwood, of said Stamford, who 
was then David Lockwood, Jr., by the Rev. Mr. Moses Mather, 
a Presbyterian minister, in Middlesex, then a part of the town 
of Stamford. That said David was in the service of the United 
States, before and after their intermarriage. That he served 
under Captain Brown for three months. Her husband enlisted 
into a Company of Artillery, .stationed at Stamford, and served 
nine months. That said David Lockwood, died in said Stam-

December 9th, 1836, Squire Dan says, he enlisted April 15th, 
1775, in a Company commanded by Col. David Waterbuiy ; 
Capt. Sylvanus Brown; Lieut. Jonathan Whiting; and Ensign 
Samuel Hait; that with this Company, deponent went to the 
northward, and served through the season, at least seven months, 
and was present at the taking of St. John's ; after which he went 
to Montreal; and was there discharged. This deponent knows 
well that David Lockwood who afterwards pursued the trade of 
a blacksmith, in a street called Newfield, in said Stamford, was a 
regular enlisted soldier in said Company, and served therein seven 
months, and was discharged at ^lontreal, and then returned to 
his home in Stamford.

The Name of Seeley. 

'' Obadiah Seeley was early a resident here, as several entries 
in the records show. In 1G51 he acknowledged payment of a debt 
due him from John Lareson. He died in 1667, and his inventory 
taken December 24th, 1667, by William Xewman and Robert 
Usher, mentions his widow Mary and his sons Obadiah, Corne- 
lius and Jonas. His widow Mary had been the widow also' of 
John Miller, of Stamford. He was probably a son of Robert 
Seeley, of Watertown, who settled afterwards in Wethersfield, 
and became quite famous as a Lieutenant in the Pequot War, 
and still later of the New Haven force under Sedgwick and 
Leverett against the New Netherlands. This name has been 
well represented in all its generations in the town." (Hy. Stam-

A foot-note is given about "Uncle Thad." Tells of his athletic 
frame, and reckless and successful daring, and his active patriot- 


ism. He was so much hated by the Tories, and so much exposed 
"was he in his house by night, that he often retired in the evening 
witli his gun and blanket to a neighboring clump of cedars which 
afforded him safer shelter ; and a description then follows, of

year of his age. — Composed by the deceased 
P. Thacher, Esq. ; Rest here, my body,

dead ; then rise to thy jnst sphere, and be 
mv house immortal."

Hon. Ezra Lockwood, who filled the offices of Supervisor, 
Justice of the Peace, member of the Legislature, Surrogate and 
Judge of the Court of Common Pleas, was a brother of Horatio. 
They were very unlike, however. Ezra was a man of studious 
habits and well educated, but he lacked the elements of popu- 
larity, which his brother possessed. He was an ardent Whig, 
and at times party spirit ran so high that the two brothers would 
not speak, although they lived opposite to each other. 

Ezra Lockwood, son of Major Ebenezer Lockwood, was born 
at Poundridge, Westchester County, New York, June 27th, 


1777. He married Sally, daughter of David and Eebecca 
(Brown) Ti'eed, of Stamford. He lived in the village of Pound- 
ridge during his whole life, occupying a residence directly oppo- 
site to the old homestead where he was born. 

Ezra was well educated, and was of a studious disposition. 
For some years he taught a private school at Poundridge. He 
was a Justice of the Peace of his town and represented it in the 
Board of Supervisors from 1807 to 1819. He also represented 
Westchester County in the State Legislature in the year 1806, 
and was Surrogate of the County 1808-10, and 1811-13. He 
was also for many years one of the Judges of the Court of Com- 
mon Pleas for Westchester County.

Hox. Horatio Lockwood. 

The suliject of this sketch, was the son of Major Ebenezer 
and Hannah (Smith) Lockwood. On the 3d of July, 1779, a 
detachment of British troops, under the command of Col. Tarle- 
ton, made a sudden descent upon the village of Poundridge, 
Westchester County, New York. One of the objects of the at- 
tack was the capture of Major Ebenezer Lockwood, for whom a 
reward of forty guineas had been offered. During the skirmish 
which followed, the house of Major Lockwood was burned, and 
his wife sought a refuge at Ridgefield, Connecticut; about nine 
miles distant. While thus temporarily^ at Ridgefield, Horatio 
was born, on the 6th of September, 1779. It was this circum- 
stance of Tarleton's raid which was the cause of his being born 
away from his father's home. ]\Iajor Lockwood's family soon 
returned to the homestead in Poundridge, where Horatio lived 
during the rest of his life. He was named after General Horatio 
Gates, but he never used the name Gates. When he became a 
man, lie succeeded to a portion of the large estate owned by his 
father, and lived in the house which was erected upon the site of 
the one which was burned by the British. He followed the oc- 
cupation of a farmer and a dealer in cattle. Being in comfort- 
able circumstances, and with good family connections, he soon 
acquired a prominent position in his town and county. 

He represented the town of Poundridge in the Board of Super- 
visors, of Westchester County, during the years 1820-1823 and 
1825-1839. He also represented Westchester County in the 
Lower House of the State Legislature during the years 1833- 
1836, 1841 and 1842. In politics he was a Democrat, but being 
very affable in his manner, and a lover of fun, he was popular 
with all parties. 

He also acquired a considerable reputation as a practitioner in 
the courts of the Justices of the Peace, a position in those days 
which was frequently filled by layman, and one which required 
not such an intricate knowledge of legal lore as of good common 
sense and an ability to impress a jury. 

In his day the periodical circuits of the Supreme Court, and 
the sessions of the County Court, were the occasions of a general 

^^^"^-^^^^^ .-^^^J^wJ'-^r^ 


gathering of the well-known men of the county, as well as of 
members of the bar. 

At such times the General, as he was called, was a conspicuous 
figure, and many anecdotes have been handed down in which he 
was the chief actor. 

On the 10th of August, 1851, while at Ellicottville, Cattarau- 
gus County, New York, where he had gone to purchase cattle 
and horses, Horatio received a stroke of paralysis. 

He was brought home, and although he lived until November 
5th, 1853, he never afterwards engaged in active business. He 
died at the age of seventy-four years, and was buried in the old 
burying-ground at Poundridge. Horatio married Bethia Close, 
a daughter of Solomon Lockwood, of Poundridge, who, with five 
daughters and one son, survived him. 

From Wm. T. L., N. Y. : 

Horatio Lochvood, of Pound Ridge, was, among his other 
professions, quite a j)cUifogger ; was once called to defend a case 
brought before a jury in a Justice's court, and his opponent was 
a lawyer named Reynolds of Sing Sing. After the case had been 
heard and all evidence in. Lawyer Reynolds summed up for his 
side in words of great eloquence. Lockwood arose, bool: in 
hand, saying : If it please your Honor, and gentlemen of the jury, 
the learned counsel having given his views of this case in a very 
able manner, I will now read to you what the law says. After 
apparently reading two or three pages (stating his views), says: 
Now, gentlemen of the jury, I leave the case in your hands, and 
sat down. Up jumps Counsellor Reynolds, saying : If it please 
your Honor, I would like to know ivhcre the learned gentleman 
finds t!ie law he has just read. Lockwood's reply was, tut, tut, 
the J — I, find j/our own law, d — n you; and won his case.

Epenetds Webb Lockwood. 

In 1887, a few days before his death, Stephen H. Brooke, of 
Philadelphia, requested his former partner, "William L. Rehn, to 
examine a chest of old letters, and destroy those of no value. 
As Mr. Brooke had been a partner of Elon Dunbar, over forty 
years before, Mr. Rehn found, among his papers, some addressed 
to Elon Dunbar. As E. Dunbar Lockwood was Mr. Dunbar's 
executor and trustee, he requested liim to look them over, and to 
his surprise he found among them a letter from his own father, 
dated forty-five years before, and alluding to himself, and one 
from Leander Hall, of Ashtabula O., dated October 1st, 1843, 
announcing the death of Eponetus Webb Lockwood, the father 
of William E., Charles L., and E. Dunbar Lockwood, and one 
of October 19th, 1843, confirming the same. 


The letter from E. W. Lockwootl was dated April 12th, 
1842, and after alluding to a draft enclosed for $227.36, and some 
business matters, says: " Vie are all enjoying good health at this 
time, and trying to do the best I can ; our little Dunbar has been 
very sick with a fever, it was thought for some time that he never 
would be any better, but he is now quite well. We should be 
pleased to see you and your family here this summer, and make 
us a visit. Yours, respectfully, 

The letter from Leander Hall, Esq., announcing the death of 
Epenetus Webb Lockwood, said : 

Ashtabula, October 1st, 1843. 

'' Dear Sir : It is with trembling nerves and aching heart that 
I attempt to communicate to you, the sad and mournful intelli- 
gence of the death of ]\Ir. E. W. Lockwood, who died yesterday 
afternoon, at about half past three o'clock, with that painful dis- 
ease, the dysentery and bilious affection. The case was an ob- 
stinate one, and seemed to defy the power of medicine, etc. 

" His wife was at Buffalo, on a visit (to her mother), when he 
was taken, was sent for, and arrived in time to see him alive and 
in his right mind, etc. 

" It was his last request, that you should come to Ashtabula, 
if you could not stay but two days." 

To Elon Dunbar, Philadelphia, Pa. 

On October 19th, 1843, not having any reply, he again wrote 
to Mr. Dunbar, saying he had not heard from him, and so wrote

Elon Dunbar. 

*'Mr. Dunbar, whose death at his residence in this city, No. 
1822 Chestnut Street, on Tuesday morning, July 31st, was 
announced in our columns yesterday, was born in Plymouth, 
Conn., December 20th, 1801, and came to Philadelphia more 
than 50 years ago. He was in early life engaged in the dry goods 
jobbing business as a member of the firms of O'Brien & Dunbar, 
and Dunbar, Brooke & Dunning, and then retired from business 
for a few years, when he again went into active life, and, form- 
ing a connection with Mr. Charles H. Welling, established the 
commission house of Dunbar & Welling. 

"This business has since been carried on under successive firms 
for thirty years, and is now conducted by the firm of Coffin, 
Altemus & Co. Mr. Dunbar retired from business altogether in 
the year 1847, with a competence, which has since been largely 
increased by accumulations and investments. He was for many 
years a member of St. Andrew's Church, under the rectorship of 
Rev. Dr. Stevens, and was one of the original members of the 
Church of the Holy Trinity, Nineteenth and ^^'alnut Streets, 
where he had been a constant attendant ever since the opening of 
that church. Mr. Dunbar was a man of untiring industry and 
energy, and of the most urbane disposition and cheerful temper, 
and of the strictest integrity in all his dealings and intercourse 


With his fellow-men. He married for his second wife, Mrs. 
Elizabeth Lockwood, with whom he lived thirty years, and who 
survives him. His own children by his first wife are all dead, 
and he leaves two grandchildren, a son and daughter of the late 
Richard Price, Jr. 

"In his long sickness, Mr. Dunbar was an example of Christian 
patience, never complaining, but always cheerful, and more 
thoughtful of others than of himself"

young men were subject to military duty. The fighting at Con- 
cord, Lexington, and Bunker Hill roused the public mind to a 
state of great excitement. Young Hanford, moved by the com- 
mon feeling, and stimulated by the impulses of his own i)atriotic 
spirit, enrolled his name in a company of minute men, commanded 
by his maternal uncle, John Carter, Captain. In the spring of 
1776 he volunteered, under General Lee, to defend the city of

his church. Some years since I was in the locality where he 
lived, and heard many allusions to his devotion and Christian 
character, -30 years after his death." (C. W. Lockvvood's letter,

State of Connecticut, 
County of Fairfield. 

On this 3d day of August, 1832, personally appeared be- 
fore the Court of Probate now in session at Weston in and for 
the District of Weston, in the County aforesaid, in oj)en court, 
it being a Court of record, Reuben Lockwood of the Town of 
Weston in the County and State aforesaid, aged 70 years and a 
few months, who being first duly sworn according to Law, doth 
on his oath make the following declaration, in order to obtain 
the benefit of the Act of Congress passed June 7th, 1832, 
namely : 

That in the latter part of the month of August, 1778, he en- 
tered the serviceof the United States under Captain Peter Sturges 
of the Town of Norwalk, in said County as a substitute for one 
Gideon Lockwood of said Weston, in the team service for the 
term of four months, that said Lockwood who is now dead had 
enlisted himself and entered his team and this declarant went 
into the service as his substitute, and actually served four months, 
and was discharged about Christmas following the time he en- 
tered the service ; that he took said Lockwood's team and went 
to Danbury in said County, when the team was apprized by order 
of Major Starr who was over the Commissary department in that 
place : that there were ten teams under the command of said 
Peter Sturges, and the team which this deponent chose and took 


charge of was one of thera, he drew the same pay aud received 
daily the same rations from the public stores as were drawn aud 
received by an enlisted soldier, that he was employed in trans- 
porting provisions for the array. That he, with the team which he 
drove, was chiefly employed in transporting provisions from said 
Danbury to Peekskill on the Hudson or iSTorth River ; when he 
with other teams carried provisions or liquors, they were generally 
allowed a guard, a corporal and six men, one time when he and 
others went to Peekskill they guarded themselves and took their 
turns in standing sentry every night. That during said four 
months service, he and the other teams in said company of teams, 
was ordered to go to Boston to carry clothing for the armv, and 
all the ten teams, including this deponent, started for Boston > 
when we arrived at Hartford in said State we found the array, 
and did not go any further, we remained at Hartford about three 
weeks and carted wood for the army ; the soldiers cut it. Gen- 
eral Gates was at Hartford in command a part of the time, that 
he saw him the morning he started for the south. General Put- 
nam he believes was left in command, though he does not recollect 
of seeing him; after they had been in Hartford about three 
weeks the teams, and the one he drove among the rest, were 
ordered back to Danbury, and we brought back to Danbury 
pressed hay which we took in at Wethersfield near Hartford ; 
soon after our return to Danbury, General Putnam with several 
Regiments came to Redding and went into Winter quarters. 
And he further says that during all the time he served as afore- 
said, he was subject to the orders of said Captain Sturges, and lie 
Sturges received his orders from the aforesaid Major Starr ; that 
at one time when he was in said service, he was ordered to go 
with the team he drove and one other team also with him, after 
a regiment which marched through Danbury towards Peekskill, 
we followed them and overtook them at Pine's Bridge, so called, 
in or near Larned's Town in the State of Xew York, the other 
team which was with him was then unloaded and returned, we 
were both loaded with provisions for the regiment — that he con- 
tinued with the team he drove, on as far as Peekskill, when he 
unloaded ; there were other teams with us, the two referred to 
were taken from the ten which were under Captain Sturges; and 


when he, the deponent, went as last aforesaid, he was put under 
the order of the Captain of the other teams, and when he arrived 
at Peekskill, he well remembers that he was detained about two 
weeks at Peekskill, the Captain to whom he was subject would 
not permit him to return ; that he was much troubled to obtain 
his rations, through the obstinacy of the Captain, he refnsed to 
permit him to have his rations until he threatened to go with his 
complaints to headquarters and then he complied. That in per- 
forming the service aforesaid he was, at all times subject to go 
wherever he was ordered ; and was at all times subject to the 
same punishment for disobedience of orders, as any enlisted 
soldier in the United States service would have been, and it was 
not a service in any sense, under a mere contract, which we could 
have broken at any time, and been subjected to the payment of 
damages only. He could neither abandon his plan nor disobey 
his orders without subjecting himself to a court martial. 

And he further says that after he was discharged from the ser- 
vice aforesaid and when he belonged to a Company of Connecti- 
cut State Militia commanded by Capt. Daniel Godfrey, to wit : 
in the year 1780 (he believes), he was drafted into the service of 
the United States and entered a Company of Connecticut State 
drafted troops to go to Stratford in said County to guard the 
coast ; was drafted for the term of two months and went to said 
Stratford under the aforesaid Capt. Daniel Godfrey, one Odle 
was the Lieut, and Jonathan Squier of said Weston was Ensign ; 
that he accordingly went and served about three weeks at Strat- 
ford aforesaid, and was then ordered to Bridgeport in said County, 
where he served about three weeks more, and then he and the 
rest of the Company to which he belonged were ordered to 
Green's Farm, in said Fairfield, where he serv^ed the residue of 
the two months for which he was drafted as aforesaid. 

That all the time during which he was drafted and served as 
last aforesaid, he was employed in guarding the coast, and that 
he actually served under said draft the term of two months. 

In regard to the aforesaid team service he recollects that when 
his time was out, but order from Major Starr, the team he drove 
was again apprized and valued at $20 less than when it entered 
the service, and this $20 was allowed by the Government to said 


Gideon Lockwood, for whom he served as a substitute; a chain 
was lost during the service and said Lockwood was allowed and 
paid for it by the Government.

In the burying-ground adjoining the Presbyterian Church in 
Goshen, Orange County, New York, is a monument with this 
inscription (see Barber and Howe's His. Coll. of N. Y., 418): 

"Erected by tlie inhabitants of Orange County 22d July, 1S22, 
Sacred to the memory of 44 of their fellow-citizens, who fell at the 
battle of Minisink, 22d July, 1779." 

Among the names of the 44 is that of Joshua Lockwood. The 
Americans were attacked by the Tories and Indians under Col. 
Brandt, and a fearful fight took place on the banks of the Dela- 
ware River near Minisink. (Vol. 3, p. 61, and also see History 
of Battle of Minisink, by C. E. Stickney, p. 103-4, N. E. H. 
G. Soc. Reg.) 

In Spoffard's Gazetteer, article " Minisink," is the follow- 
ing: "In 1822 the citizens of Orange County collected the 


bones of the gallant baud who were cut off by the Indians at 
Minisink, and which had been exposed to the suns and snows of 
forty-three years." 

In Stone's life of Braut, pp. 415-419, a full account is given 
of this fight at Minisink, which is about ten miles west of Goshen, 
in the County of Orange, Xew York, on the Narisink River and 
among the Shawaugunk mountains. The Wallkill rises in this 

" 1779, July 22d, a party of sixty Indians and twenty-seven 
whites led by Braut, attacked the Minisink settlement in Orange 
County, New York, burning ten houses, twelve barns, a fort and 
two mills, carrying ofi' cousiderable booty and several prisoners. 

"The remains of forty-four persons were found, and publicly 
interred. The line of procession was led by the Cadets from 
West Point and extended about a mile. 

" Major Poppino, who bore a distinguished part in the battle, 
though at this celebration ninety-six years old, walked in the 
procession and was one of the pall-bearers. 

"In the burying-ground adjacent to the Presbyterian Church 
in Goshen is a monument with this inscription : 

" Erected by the inhabitants of Orange Courty, 22d July, 1822, 
Sacred to the memory of forty-four of their fellow-citizens, 
who fell at the battle of Minisink 22d July 1779."

Eleizur Lockwood. 

"Eleizur Lockwood, boru October 16th, 1774, was a refugee 
from Canada; who left that province during the war of 1812, 
rather than take the oath of allegiance to the British Govern- 
ment. He left, in 1813 or 1814, and probably came from 
"Winters, and was one of the first pioneers of Perkins, O. His 
daughter, Mrs. Polly Ann Tayler, relates, in 1865: He was 
from New York State, and born on a branch of the Susquehanna 
River, October 16th, 1774, and had three wives, and at fifteen 
years of age, moved to Canada, and had born Eleizur, Amanda 
and Semantha. Amanda died in Sandusky, and Samantha in 
Perkins township. He first settled in Sandusky County, Riley 
township, and there Nancy and Betsy were born. Then moved 
to Bloomingville. By the second marriage he had: William, 
Amanda, James, INIorgan. She died in ten years, and so he 
married for the third time, widow Cannady, and had eight chil-

"Mr. Lockwood had a farm of 600 acres, or a mile square, was 
a farmer, and great shot, etc., and shot two or three deer before 

Eleizur Lockwood. 

From "The Fire Lands Pioneer," published by the Historical 
S<x;iety, at Norwalk, O., vol. 6, p. 21. 

"As Mr. Eleizur Lockwood was the first settler in Perkins, O., 
a narrative of his pioneer life may be interesting to your readers. 

" I am chiefly indebted to his daughter, Mrs. Polly Ann 
Tayler, for the following facts. He was a native of New York 
State, and born on the Susquehanna River, or one of its tribu- 


taries, which run up iuto that State from Pennsylvania. He was 
born the 16th of October, 1774. He had in all three wives, the 
third is still (1865) living with her daughter in Illinois; she is 
very healthy for an old lady of her age. \yhen he was fifteen 
years of age he moved to Canada, he lived there until he was 
nearly thirty-five. He had born there one son and two 
daughters, viz. : Eleizur, xVmanda, and Semautha. The two 
girls are both dead ; Amanda died in Lower Sandusky, and Se- 
raantha died in Perkins township. When he came to Ohio, he 
first settled in Sandusky County, Riley township, and while there 
had two children born to him, Nancy and Betsey. 

"They then moved to Bloomingville and stayed awhile, and 
then moved to Perkins, on the farm now owned by Charles Con- 
verse. His wife was taken sick in about a week after their re- 
moval, and in a short time died. There was no house on the 
farm, but with the aid of his sons they soon erected a comfortable 
house. The county then was very sparsely settled and neighbors 
few and far between. There was but one building in Sandusky 
and that a log cabin. In a short time he was again married. 
He had by his second marriage four children ; William, Amanda, 
James, and Morgan. He lived with his second wife some ten 
years, and then after a brief illness followed his life partner to 
the last resting place. But as the demands of a large family 
were numerous, and thinking himself incapable of attending the 
place of both father and mother, he again married in about three 

" He married the widow Cannady, after which he was blessed . 
with eight children ; Polly Ann, Robert, Rusha, Lucy, Lucretia, 
Bigelow, Orra,and Amelia. Two of these are deceased (1865), the 
rest are living in different parts of the United States. Polly Ann, 
the eldest daughter, is the only one of the children living in Per- 
kins. She married Lyman Tayler, uncle Joseph Tayler's youngest 
son. They now live on the northwest corner of the old homestead. 
Mr. Lockwood purchased his farm of John Beatty, consisting of 
over six hundred acres, or a mile square. A portion of it was 
prairie, and the rest very heavily timbered. He paid Mr. 
Beatty ten shillings an acre for the land. He was a farmer by 
occupation, but could take his gun and shoot as well, if not 


better, than some of the more experieuced hunters ; he depended 
entirely upon his trusty rifle for the replenishing of his winter 
larder. The woods were nearly an unbroken thicket. Game of 
all kinds was very abundant; bears, wolves, panthers, deer, coon, 
mink, otter, and wild turkey. The de^r were so abundant when 
he first came into the country, that you could almost catch them. 
It was thought nothing strange for a person to go out before 
breakfast and shoot two or three. He went out hunting one 
day, and being overtaken by night, he camped out. He was 
awakened along about midnight, by a rustling among the leaves, 
and looking up saw a couple of lurid spots, and, thinking them 
the eyes of something that had no business there, fired. It 
proved to be an enormous panther just in the act of springing 
upon him as he fired. It sprang forward with a yell and dropped 
dead at his feet. 

''When living in Riley township, Sandusky County, he one 
day went to mill, with a grist, leaving his wife alone with the 

"She was expecting him home at nighfand had prepared a large 
kettle of mush ; it was sitting on the hearth to keep it warm, 
when all at once a huge form darkened the door. 

"It came through a hole in the back part of the chimney which 
Mr. Lockwood had been intending to repair, but had not got 
about it, and, without as much as ' How do you do,' stuck his 
nose into the kettle of hot mush, and be-jin to munch it down. 
It proved to be a bear; he soon devoured the pudding, and then, 
without so much as a look at Mrs. Lockwood, made a hasty 
exit. Mr. Lockwood would often be g-Due a week at a time, at 
a distance of from twenty to thirty miles. 

" One day while on a hunting expedition, he saw a large bear 
running off with a little pig in his mouth. Piggy gave utter- 
ance to his distaste for the whole affair by an occasional squeak 
and spasmodic jerk of the heels; but it was plainly evident that 
Bruin had never heard of the 'golden rule,' as poor piggy's 
weakened tones began to testify. ^Ir. Lockwood immediately 
put a ' quietus ' to the whole affair by sending the never-failing 
lead into Bruin's shaggy sides. 


" When Mr. Lockwood was a babe but two weeks old, his 
mother was taken prisoner by the Indians, but being in poor 
health could not keep up with the long strides of the dusky- 
warriors. Some wanted to kill her, others said she would die 
anyhow if left alone, so they finally concluded to let her go- 
She reached a friendly Dutch settler's cabin, and they kindly 
assisted her in reaching home. 

"Mr. Lockwood sold his farm in 1852, and moved to Illinois, 
and died in Indiana while on a visit. He was eighty-seven 
years old. Thus sank to rest the oldest settler of Perkins town- 
ship, and to whose energy of character, indomitable will and 
Christian example, we of this township owe much." 

Mr. Lockwood* was one of the refugees from Canada, who 
left that province during the war of 1812, rather than take the 
oath of allegiance to the British Government. He left the 
provinces probably in 1813 or 1814. Probably he came from 
Winters. This Eleizur settled in the fourth section in 1810, and 
was doubtless the first settler.

From M^sconsin State Historical Society's Collections. 

Hon. James H. Lockwood, of Prairie du Chien, Crawford 
County, Wisconsin, wrote an article for the Historical Society^ 
it is 99 pages long and printed in Vol. 2 of that Society's pub- 
lication in 1856, and frequently referred to in the various other 

* Editor Pioneer. 


volumes of the Society's collections, and by a number of later 
writers. It commences on page 98, and is entitled " Early Times 
and Events in Wisconsin," in -which he says, "I was born in 
Peru, Clinton County, Xew York, December 7th, 1793, and 
lived in the woods most of my days. My father being a farmer 
moved to Jay, Essex County, but subsequently, in 1803, got the 
'Ohio fever' and determined to go there, but the later reports 
caused him to change his mind and settle in Champlain, Clinton 
County, IS". Y., in 1805." In Vol. 6, p. 303, he is mentioned 
among " the early settlers who were conspicuous for their intelli- 
gence." His portrait hangs in the picture gallery of the Society. 

Judge Lockwood was a clerk with a sutler in the army in 
1814, and was one of the founders of Green Bay, and Prairie 
du Chien, where he settled in 1819. He then declined a judge- 
ship, was appointed a Justice of the Peace. In 1823 he declined 
clerkship of Court, studied law, and in 1824 was appointed 
Postmaster under President Monroe. In 1826 he erected the 
first framed house in Prairie du Chien; he was subsequently 
appointed Associate Judge, and in 1836 he represented Crawford 
County in the first Territorial Legislature. 

Judge Lockwood gives an account of "Red Bird's" disturb- 
ances; he came to his house with two other Indians, and entering 
the cellar kitchen loaded their guns in the presence of the servant 
girl, and went up through the hall into Mrs. Lockwood's bed- 
room, where she was sitting alone. The moment the Indians 
entered her room, she believed they came to kill her, and imme- 
diately passed into and through the parlor and crossed the hall 
into the store to her brother, a young man of sixteen years, who 
was there with others, and the Indians finally left, etc. 

"The first Sunday-School established w^as by my first wife, 
Mrs. Julianna Lockwood, who was raised among the Presby- 
terians and Congregational ists of New England, and early im- 
bibed the strong prejudices of those people against the Roman 
Catholics, etc., etc., which afterwards wore off." 

" We were married in the summer of 1824 and came to Prairie 
du Chien in the autumn." 

A sketch of Judge Lockwood is published in Vol. 3 of the 
Hi.s. Soc. Coil's, published in 1857, and says he was born De- 


cember 7th, 1793, and was then " the oldest Anglo-American 
settler in Wisconsin," and on p. 508, of same volume, his death 
is announced. He died at Prairie du Chien, Monday, August 
24th, 1857, in the 64th year of his age (63. 8. 17). 

"In 1842 or '43 Mr. Lockwood united with the Episcopal 
Church at Prairie du Chien, of which he coutinued a member 
until his death." 

"On Tuesday his funeral was attended by Rev. Alfred Brun- 
son, who delivered a very feeling eulogy on him," etc. 

Vol. 4, p. 166. "It is stated that he was attorney for the 
plaintiff in the first jury trial at Green Bay, Wis., and gained 
the suit. The defendant in the case was a Frenchman. He and 

his friends were outrageous in their denunciations of the d d 

Yaukee court and jury. He was also the first lawyer that prac- 
ticed west of Lake Michigan" (p. 175). On p. 305, Vol. 4, it 
is stated that " the only house of any pretensions there in 1836, 
was the one occupied by Judge Lockwood."

Lockwood. Like many others of the sons of the town during 
the last half century, he commenced his life as a seaman. He 
soon abandoned his sea-life, returned to Stamford and settled 
down, on what was then the old turnpike, in the old Lockwood 
homestead. Here he spent the rest of his days. He was soon 
found ready and efficient in aiding forward every needed enter- 
prise of the town, and rose rapidly to his place among the first 
citizens. At the beginning of this century, no man stood higher 
than he in the public esteem. For nineteen years he did good 
service as one of the selectmen of the town, and represented the 
town in eight sessions of the State Legislature. He was charac- 
terized for his promptness and punctuality. It was a proverb 
that Captain Lockwood's rambling pony was the best timepiece 
in the town, never failing to appear with her rider at the post-ofBce 
at the appointed time. Was a worshipful master mason, and 
right worshipful brother and high priest. (History Stamford, p.

Church Taxes for Ministerial Support. 

For five years, ending with 1806, quite a list of unpaid taxes 
had accumulated, and the next year Augustus Lockwood is 
appointed a special collector, with instructions forthwith to levy 
upon the estates of such as fjiilcd to meet the arrearages. In the 
prosecution of his duty he seized a horse of Wm. Waterbury ith, 
and sold it under the ordinary warrant. The defendant turns 
plaintiff, and institutes a suit against the collector for the recovery 
of his horse. The society stand by their agent, as appears from 
the following vote of December 6th, 1809: 

"Voted, unanimously, that this society will indemnify Augus- 
tus Lockwood, in the suit that William Waterbury 4th has com- 
menced against him, which is now pending in the Superior Court, 
on account of horse which said Augustus Lockwood took from 
said Waterbury, by virtue of warrants for society taxes, of which 
said Augustus was collector." 

In 1811 we find a heavier tax than usual levied — five cents on 
a dollar — and the excess over the usual rate, which had been 
about two and a half cents only, seems to have been charged to 
the above suit. The vote states that it " is granted for the pur- 


pose of defraying the necessary expenses of the society, and for 
discharging the demand Augustus Lockwood has against said 
society." (Hy. Stamford, p. 304.)

Rev. Moses Mather, D.D. 
The most extensive invasion of the town of Stamford, Connec- 
ticut, by the British and their loyal abettors, occurred Sunday, 
July 22(1, 1781. The service had commenced. Rev. Dr. Moses 
Mather was in the pulpit which he had occupied for nearly forty 
years, and it was undoubtedly his earnest patriotism which had 
led to this attack. Its object was to capture that fearless preacher 
of treason. Suddenly the house was surrounded and the sum- 
mons to surrender was issued, in the well-known voice of their 
tory neighbor, Captain Frost. The men and older youths of the 
congregation were drawn up two by two in marching order, and 
tied arm to arm. Tlie pastor was ordered to the front, alone, to 
lead the march. 


Dr. D\vio;ht's Travels has the following account of the suffer- 
ings to which Rev. Dr. Mather was suhjected during his imprison- 
ment : 

" This venerable man was marched with his parishioners to the 
shore, and thence conveyed to Lloyd's Neck. From that place 
he was soon marched to New York and confined in the Provost 
Prison. His food was stinted and wretched to a degree not easily 

" His lodgings corresponded with his food. His company, to a 
considerable extent, was made up of a mere rabble, and their 
conversation, from which he could not retreat, composed of pro- 
faneness and ribaldry. Here, also, he was insulted daily by the 
Provost-Marshal, whose name was Cunningham — a wretch re- 
membered in this country only with detestation. This wretch, 
among other kinds of abuse, took a particular satisfaction in 
announcing from time to time to Dr. Mather that on that day, 
the morrow, or some time at a little distance, he was to be exe- 
cuted. But Dr. Mather was not without his friends, however, 
who knew nothing of him, except his character. A lady of dis- 
tinction, having learned his circumstances, and having obtained 
the necessary permission, sent to him clothes and food, and com- 
forts with a liberal hand." (Hy. Stamford, pp. 210-212.) 

Rev. Dr. Mather was grandfather of the venerable Mrs. 
Nathan Lockwood, whose portrait is given in this work. She is 
now (1888) living, and well, in Darien, Connecticut, in the 95th 
year of her age, and 63cZ year of her loidowhood.

" From Personal Memoirs written by Mrs. Daniel Gibbs, of

1816, and reached our habitation in the wilderness April 30th, 
being over three months' travel," " Eight of us were leaving 
good homes for a home in the far west; a home procured by our 
father, who had been on before us." " My brother Henry, his 
wife and their little Henry, my husband, self, and our Eliza (of 
five years), and David (three years), with Mr. L. Keeler, who 
drove our baggage wagon, composed our company," etc., etc. 

" ]\Iy father, S. Lockwood, accompanied us ten or twelve miles 
at the start." " It was our determination not to travel on the 
Sabbath." " Our own ' home,' the7i, was a substantial wagon, 
covered with oil cloth, lined with blankets, carpeted, s})ring 
seats, very comfortable and decent, and drawn by heavy bays. 
We had every article of clothing comfortable for the season 
(winter), blankets (our cloaks with hoods were lion skin cloth, 
except that no such thing as buffalo or lion robes were known) 
and furs and foot stoves to warm us, so that with our ' provision 
chest' containing chickens, hams, hard biscuits, pies, doughnuts 
by the bushel, tea, coffee, pickles, dried fruit and preserves, and 


all necessary articles, we were ' well to do ' in the world. At 
Clinton we spent a week with a sister, Mrs. Mason, etc. 

" My brother's child, of eighteen months, died on the way, 
and ' our little D./ died, after lingering twelve days." ('' The

Commentaries on Americau Law. '"For a long series of years 
he was the unquestioned head of American Jurisprudence, and 
in private and dome-tic life noted for all those qualities which 
characterize the Christian gentleman." 

A reply to an inquiry, kindly furnished by his son, Hon. 
Judge "William Kent, of New York, mentions memoranda 
among his father's papers, in which the Chancellor says that, 
" When he was five years old, he was sent to Norwalk to school, 
and lived with his grandfather Rogers four years, going to an 
English school during that time." He adds, " The government 
of my grandfather was pretty strict, and the manners of his 
family were orderly, quiet, and religious." (New Eng. His. and

Born July 31st, 1763, married April, 1785, Miss Elizabeth 
Bayley. In an article published years ago, it is stated that 
" Chancellor Kent enjoyed for the last 25 years of his life a sort 
of intellectual and moral supremacy in this our republic rarely 
paid to any man, and never, as one of his personal friends writes, 
' was any one so wholly unspoiled by it.' 

"His remains were followed to the tomb on December loth, 
1847, by perhaps the largest assembly of men of intellect and 
learning ever witnessed in that city " (New York). (National 
Portrait Gallery, p. 13.) 

Chancellor Kent, the Nestor of the American Bar. 

In a letter from Chancellor Kent to a friend, October 6th, 1828, 
telling the story of his life (he was then 65 years old), he says : 

" I was educated at Yale College, and graduated in 1781," etc. 
" I was admitted to the Bar of the Supreme Court in January, 
1785, at the age of 21, and then married without one cent of 
property ; for my education exhausted all my father's resources 
and left me in debt $400, which it took me two or three years to 
discharge. Why did I marry? I answer, at the farmer's house 
where I boarded, one of his daughters, a little, modest, lovely 
girl of fourteen, gradually caught ray attention, and insensibly 
stole upon my affections; and before I thought of love, or knew 
what it was, I was most violently affected. I was 21 and my 
wife 16, when we married; and that charming and lovely girl 
has been the idol and solace of my life, and is now with me in 
my office, unconscious that I am writing this concerning her," 
etc., etc. " We have three children, one son and two daughters," 
etc. (New Eng. His. Gen. Reg., vol. 3, p. 1.) 

Hon. James Kent, LL.D. 
An American jurist, born in Philippi, Putnam County, New 
York, July 31st, 1763, died in New York, December 12th, 1847. 
His grandfather, the Rev. Elisha Kent, whose family was early 
established at Suffolk, Connecticut, became in 1740 the Presby- 
terian clergyman of Philippi. His father, Moses Kent, Esq., 
was a lawyer, and for some years Surrogate of Rensselaer 


County. His maternal grandfather was Dr. Uriah Rogers, 
whose wife was Hannah LocJcwood. 

James Kent graduated at Yale College in 1781, studied law, 
was admitted in 1785 as an attorney, and in 1787 as a counsel- 
lor, and commenced the practice of his profession in Pough- 
keepsie. He soon became remarkable for his legal learning and 
literary attainments. Mr. Kent became an active and leading 
federalist, attracting the notice and confidence of Hamilton and 
Jav. He served in the legislature of N"ew York. Gov. Jay 
nominated him in 1798 a Judge of the Supreme Court of Xew 
York. He was Chief Justice from 1804 to 1814; in the latter 
year he was appointed Chancel lor. " His Commentaries on 
American Law " have passed through many editions, and have 
acquired a world-wide celebrity. The work has assumed in the 
United States the position long held in England by Blackstone's 
''Commentaries on the Laws of England." (Extracts from 
Am'n Cyclopfedia, vol. ix., pp. 794-796.)

I find two dates among the papers, I think August 23d, 1834, 
is correct. 

Being quite voung, he was accepted in the Town Guards, of 
Greenwich, Conn. ; enlisted for nine months, in 1782, under 
Capt. Henry Waring, of said Greenwich. Charles Knapp was 
sergeant; Oliver Ferris was quarter-master; John Hensted was 
steward, and dealt out the rations. His enlistment expired about 
Christmas ; was then discharged. He again enlisted, joined 
regiment under Gen. David Waterbury ; went to Morrisania and 
as far as Mamoraonk, where we were ordered to return.

Hon. Samuel Drake Lockwood was born in Poundridge, ^yest- 
chester County, N. Y., on the 2d day of August, 1789. 

When he was ten years old his father died, and his mother was 
left with three young children and with but slender means for 
their support. By this event his plans for a liberal education 
were broken up and he was thrown very much upon his own 


In 1803 he went to Waterford, K Y,, to live with his uncle 
Francis Drake, a lawyer in that place, and remained in his family 
as errand boy and law student until February, 1811, when he 
was licensed to practice law, and opened an office in Batavia, 
jSI". Y. The next year he removed to Auburn, and continued in 
the practice of law tliere till the fall of 1818, holding during a 
part of that time the office of Master in Chancery. At that 
time his constitution (never very strong) seemed so broken down 
by disease and constant application to business that his physician 
advised him to give up his profession and engage in some out- 
door employment, as the only way of regaining even his former 
degree of health. 

This advice, together with the glowing accounts of the great 
"far west" then prevalent, induced him to change his residence 
and seek his future home in the new State of Illinois. On Oc- 
tober 19th of that year, in company with the late William H. 
Brown and others, he started on his western trip. 

At Olean Point, N. Y., they purchased a flat boat, on which 
they floated down the Allegheny and Ohio rivers to Shawnee- 
town, reaching that place on December 15th, and making the 
trip in fifty-seven days. 

After remaining a few days in Shawneetown, Lockwood and 
Brown started for Kaskaskia on foot, a walk of 120 miles. The 
next year Mr. Brown was appointed Clerk of the United States 
District Court, and their arrangement for a law partnership being 
thus broken up, Mr. Lockwood removed to Carmi as a more 
favorable point for the practice of his profession. 

At the second session of the Illinois Legislature, which was 
held at Vandalia in 1821, Mr. Lockwood was elected Attorney- 
General of the State, and his acceptance of this office rendering 
another change of residence necessary, he chose Edwardsville for 
his future home. 

In 1823 he was, very unexpectedly to himself, nominated by 
Governor Cole to the office of Secretary of State, but soon after 
accepting that office he was greatly surprised by receiving from 
President Monroe a commission appointing him receiver of public 
moneys at the land office in Edwardsville. This commission was, 
in itself, as undesired as it was unsought, the salary of Secretary 


U'' \' wSp^^^ 

Mri ^<0^cy^6ir^J^ 


of State was small and payable in depreciated currency, while 
the salary of receiver was liberal and payable in gold, and had 
attached to it a percentage on receipts. These considerations 
induced him to resign the office of Secretary and accept that of 

At the next session of the State Legislature, 1824-5, he was, 
against his expressed wishes, elected Judge of the Supreme Court, 
which office he accepted and held until the State Constitution of 
1848 went into operation, under which new judges were elected 
by the people. 

In 1826 he was married to Miss Mary Virginia Nash, of St. 
Louis County, Mo., the amiable and excellent wife that now 
mourns for him, and whom we have so long loved and admired. 

In 1829 he removed from Edwardsville to Jacksonville — in 
1853 from that place to Batavia, Kane County, where he died. 
He was sent from Morgan County as delegate to the Constitutional 
Convention of 1848, and in that convention was chairman of the 
committee on the executive. 

In 1851 he was appointed by the Legislature trustee of the 
land department of the Illinois Central Railroad, which office he 
held at the time of his death. 

The position which he has held in the history of our State is 
indicated by the offices which have been conferred upon him. 
Having a natural distaste for everything like office-seeking, and 
never putting himself forward for any official position, he has 
still been kept in offices of high position and trust for over fifty 

In the anti-slavery controversy over the question of a State 
convention in 1823, he took an active part and contributed 
materially to the support and editorial efficiency of the Edwards- 
ville Spectator, oue of the two papers that took decided ground 
for freedom in this State. 

Though never an active partisan, he was fully identified with 
the Whig party till 1855, when he with most of that party helped 
to form the Republican party. Many of the offices he has held 
were conferred upon him by administrations with which he was 
not in political sympathy. 

In Gov, Ford's History of Illinois are found the following 


notices of Judge Lockwood : In 1820 was fought the first 
and last duel in Illinois. One of the parties fell mortally 
wounded, the other was tried and convicted of murder and 
suffered the extreme penalty of the law by hanging. Judge 
Lockwood was then the Attorney of the State and prosecuted 
in the case. To his talents and success as a prosecutor, the 
people are indebted for this early precedent and example which 
did more than is generally known to prevent the barbarous prac- 
tice of duelling from being introduced into the State. 

In 1826-7 Judges Lockwood and Smith presented to the 
Legislature a revision of the laws of the State, prepared by them 
in accordance with the instructions of the preceding Legislature, 
and these laws have been standard laws in every revision since. 

In his chapter on a somewhat bitter controversy that occurred 
between the executive and judicial departments of the State in 
1840, Gov. Ford says : " It is due to truth to say that Judges 
Wilson and Lockwood were in every respect amiable and ac- 
complished gentlemen, and commanded the esteem and respect of 
all good men for the purity of their conduct and their probity in 
official station." 

Judge Lockwood was an excellent lawyer, a man of sound 
judgment, and his face indicated uncommon purity, modesty and 
intelligence, together with energy and strong determination. His 
face was the true index of his character. Any account of Judge 
Lockwood's services to the State which should fail to notice his 
connection with its educational, benevolent and religious interests, 
would come far short of doing him justice. As early as his resi- 
dence in Auburn, he was so identified with the religious interest 
there as to be appointed one of the trustees of the Presbyterian 

In 1815 was formed the Cayuga County Bible Society, the 
first organized in the State of jSTew York, two years before the 
organization of the American Bible Society, and Judge Lock- 
wood's name appears as one of the originators and directors of 
that organization. Of the twenty-four first directors of that 
society, he was the last survivor. The stand he thus took, as 
indicated by these incidents, he maintained through life. 

Judge Lockwood, with others, started in this State the move- 


ment which resulted in the establishment of the Illinois College. 
His influence and liberality secured its location in Jacksonville, 
and while able to attend to the duties he held the position of 
president of its board of trustees. 

He took an active part in planning and organizing each of the 
three State institutions now located in Jacksonville, the A?_vlum 
for the Deaf and Dumb, the Blind and the Insane, and was on 
the first board of trustees of each of those institutions. And in 
every place where he has resided in the State his influence has 
been a strong, steady and reliable power for good, always on the 
side of freedom, temperance, morality and Christianity. 

For the last twenty-one years Judge Lockwood has had his 
residence in Batavia, in an honored old age enjoying his quiet 
home on the pleasant bank of our river, and rejoicing in every- 
thing that tended to advance the material or moral prosperity of 
the State he had loved so long and served so faithfully. On the 
23d of April, 1874, he passed away from us in a death as quiet 
and peaceful as his life with us has been. 

Hon. Samuel Drake Lockwood. 

From tlie letters of Governor Xinian Edwards, of Illinois, we 
learn that Judge Samuel D. Lockwood was proposed for Unite-I 
States Senator from Illinois, in 1822, and in a letter from Gov- 
ernor Edwards, dated September 17th, 1822, he speaks in the 
highest terms of Judge Lockwood, " whom he esteems very 
highly." And on December 8th, 1822, John Reynolds al?o 
alludes to liim in a published letter, saying, "Some members 
want Lockwood to offer for Senator. I want to harmonize with 
Lockwood and his friends." There are also a number of other 
references in the book, giving the details of the fight for United 
States Senator, and alluding to Judge Lockwood. (The Edwards 
Papers, of Xinian Edwards, Governor and U. S. Senator, by Hon. 
E. B. Washburne; edition 1884, p. 192, etc.)

John Lockwood was born December 3d, 1814, at Ballston Spa, 
Saratoga County, State of New York. He was the son of 
Stephen and Catharine (Groshon) Lockwood and grandson of 
Solomon Lockwood, who with his son Stephen emigrated from 
Greenwich or Horseneck, Conn., settling down in Ballston Sj)a. 

The subject of this sketch spent his minority at the place of 
his birth and at Troy, in Rensselaer County. In 1844, he re- 
moved to Cincinnati, O., and soon thereafter engaged in the 
business of erecting gas works for the purpose of lighting up 
cities and towns with gas, making his headquarters at Cincinnati 
until the year 1852, when he removed to Milwaukee, Wis., for 
the purpose of erecting gas works, and becoming pleased with 
the location and beauty of the place, decided to locate there, and 







investing largely in real estate, soon became interested in the 
welfare of the State, taking quite a prominent part in politics. 
He was elected in 1859 as a member of the Common Council, 
during his term he became satisfied that peculation was being 
carried on by city officials ; he asked for a Committee of Investi- 
gation, and as its chairman succeeded in getting some twenty in- 
dictments for forgery, and embezzlement against the city comp- 
troller and city clerk, placing them both in prison. He was a 
member of the State Central Committee, a member of the Con- 
gressional Committee, President of the Farmers and Millers' 
Bank, of Milwaukee, and in 1861 was appointed postmaster of 
Milwaukee, by President Lincoln. He was a director in the 
Milwaukee & Prairie Du Chien Railroad Co., and was contractor 
for the building or extension of the same road from Madison to 
Prairie du Chien, a distance of 100 miles, costing some §2,500,000. 
He also organized and was President of the St. Croix and Lake 
Superior Railroad Co., with a land grant of about 2,000,000 
acres of land belonging to it. Pie located the line, starting from 
the City of Hudson on Lake St. Croix, thence to Bayfield and. 
Superior City, put the line under contract just in time for the 
panic of 1857 to arrest its progress. Was a Congressional dele- 
gate for the organization of the Texas & Pacific Railroad. 

As a gas and hydraulic engineer, his business has necessarily 
carried him to many parts of the country, as the following list 
of works he has erected will show: 

Frankfort, Ky. ; Dayton, O. ; Columbus, O. ; Zanesville, O. ; 
Sandusky, O. ; Chilicothe, O. ; Newport, R. I.; Dallas, Tex. ; 
New Albany, Ind. ; Madison, Ind. ; jNlilwaukee, Wis. ; Janes- 
ville, Wis. ; Milwaukee South Side, Wis. ; West Troy, N. Y. ; 
Jefferson City, N. O., La. ; Fort Worth, Tex. ; Steubenville, 
O. ; Indianapolis, Ind. ; Kings County, N. Y. ; Staten Island. 

He is now engaged in the City of New York, at a plan for the 
introduction of salt water for fire and sanitary purposes; a few 
extracts from the New York Herald will give somewhat of au idea 
of it. 

From the New York Herald. 

How to fight flames, a ponderous scheme for the protection of 
property. Fire engines displaced. The water comes from a 


tank 350 feet above the ground. The recent disastrous fires that 
have occurred in this city have drawn the attention of the 
Board of Underwriters more closely to the question of the ex- 
tinction of conflagrations by some more efficient means than at 
present in use. But the cost of the present system In tlie in- 
ability to cope successfully with large conflagrations, the conse- 
quent loss of millions of dollars, and the waste of water, ren- 
dered a new plan necessary. At last a plan has been projected 
which it is thought will obviate the defects of the present system 
for extinguishing fires. 

Its originator, a hydraulic engineer (John Lockwood, Esq.), has 
given the subject many years' study, and has at last perfected a 
system which he claims is infinitely better than the present one. 
The specifications and plans are accompanied by a certificate from 
the civil engineer, Mr. J. McAlpin, the most eminent in his pro- 
fession of any in the United States, who says the scheme is the 
best that can be devised. The details of the work to be done are on 
such a gigantic scale that one not acquainted with engineering 
would condemn them at first sight. But every item has been 
carefully figured out by an expert mathematician and the work 
declared to be easy of accomplishment. The first requisite of the 
project is a tower situated in the vicinity of Union Square, 100 
feet in diameter and 350 feet in height above tide water. This 
tower is to support a reservoir containing 2,000,000 gallons of 
water, to be kept full by means of large pumping apparatus, three 
in number and equal to 1750 horse-power. The plan contem- 
plates 4000 fire hydrants and 100 miles of pipe, distinct and 
separate from the present Croton system, 272 streams of three 
inches in diameter can be brought to bear on any fire, witli hose not 
exceeding 1000 feet in length, the motive force of the jet of water 
from the ends of the hose will be simply the tremendous im- 
petus given to the water by its vertical fall of over 300 feet 
in the reservoir tower. The weight of the tower of masonry 
and of the iron reservoir when full of water and the floors and 
roof, will be about 20,000 tons.

The Rev. Henry Lockwood (Missionary), 

Who was among the last of those who received the rite of con- 
firmation from the hands of the great Bishop Hobart shortly 
before his death, was encouraged by Doctor, afterward Bishop, 
AVhitehouse to become a clergyman. " In 1831, under the direc- 
tion and encouragement of Bishop Whitohouse, he entered the 


General Theological Seminary in New York. It was during 
his three years' course here, and particularly near the close of it, 
that his mind became strongly influenced on the subject of the 
claims of foreign missions. It was a subject in which many of 
the students felt a considerable interest, and it was increased by 
an association which they formed among themselves for gaining 
missionary information and zeal." (Bishop Smith, in Church- 
man, February 14th, 1880.) 

The Right Rev. William Bacon Stevens, D.D., of Pennsyl- 
vania, wrote an article which is published in the History of the 
Episcopal Church, pp. 245 and 471, as Monograph IV., in which 
he alludes to the fixct that on the 14th of July, 1834, the Rev. 
Henry Lockwood was appointed oNIissionary to China, and the 
following February the Rev. F. R. Hanson was associated with 
Mr. Lockwood in this work, and quotes the following remarks 
of Bishop White, of Pennsylvania, in addressing Rev. Messrs. 
Hanson and Lockwood, the first missionaries of the Episcopal 
Church in China in 1835, when he said : 

"In the tie which binds you to the Episcopal Church, there 
is nothing which places you in the attitude of hostility to men 
of any other Christian denomination, and much which should 
unite you in affection to those occupied in the same cause with 
yourself," etc. (Bishop Perry's Hy. of the American Ep. Ch., 
pp. 245 and 471.)

Capt. Isaac Lockwood Hoyt. 

The son of Thaddeus, Jr., and Rebecca (Lockwood) Hoyt, named 
for his maternal grandfather, Capt. Isaac Lockwood, a leading man 
in the town of Stamford, Connecticut, was born in that part of the 
town which has since been incorporated as Darien. On the 
breaking out of the late war he cheerfully entered the Union 
service, though at great personal sacrifice. 

In his first term of service (three months) he won for himself the 
love and confidence of the entire company. Though not in com- 
mand, it is not too much to say that he was the man in the company 
to whom they had cause to look for advice and help ; and under 


■s\-honi tliey would gladly trust themselves, if the country should 
again call them to the field. 

He accepted the command of a company in the 10th Connec- 
ticut Regiment, was in the famous Burnside expedition into Xorth 
Carolina. But he was not long to command his company. The 
local fever seized upon his healthy frame and he was forced to 
yield. His death occurred on board the New Brunswick, at New- 
bern, Xorth Carolina, March 20tli, 1862. He was buried in the 
pleasant cemetery at Darien, Connecticut. 

This patriot son of Stamford went to his grave amid the 
siucerest tokens of sorrow which a grateful people could pay to 
his honored and cherished memory. (Extracts from His'y Stam-

was a man whose whole heart and best endeavors were given to 
the building u}) of Christ's kingdom. Wherever he chanced to 
be, he labored to establish mission-schools, and to make the most 
of the Sunday-school, for he loved little children. He was one 
of the pioneers in the starting of mission-schools in the " Five 
Points " of New York, when that famous plague spot was a terror 
to the city, and when a respectable man took his life in his hand 
when he entered its precincts. But although we that loved him 
used to be terror-stricken when he went alone and unarmed about 
his Master's work in that terrible place, he never knew what fear 
was. His life was threatened over and over again, but he never 
flinched nor feared. (His daughter's letter, March, 1888.)
